I just bought a new Portable Fireplace and it can contain the propane tank inside it. I also bought some firestones to put in the fire area. The only problem with this is that if I want to turn on/off the fireplace then I need to lift up the fire place and then turn the propane tank valve on/off.
Which is do-able but a bit of a hassle. I was thinking to keep the propane tank valve always on. If I do that, I can still rely on fireplace valve to turn the heat on/off. The only potential problem with this is that my propane tank valve would be perpetually on.
This leaves me with one question: what can potentially happen if the tank is on. is it going to leak the gas or is it plain out hazardous to safety?
