Need to Replace Propane Tank Valve Seal

I need to replace the rubber seal in one of my 30 lb propane tanks. It's the seal that is in the tank valve which seals when the Acme nut is tightened. I'm having trouble finding a replacement seal. Has anyone done this?

Any propane dealers nearby? They would be my first choice.

It would probably cost more in labor to replace then just to buy a new tank.

Google a welding supply near you. they fill and certify all tanks. They have seals for all the tanks on hand and it's pretty standard for them to replace the seals. Avoid most of the cost by asking them to fill and certify the tank...they find it and pop a new one in. Certifying is cheap and easy.

Thanks for the replies. I'm planning on replacing the seal myself. I already have the old seal out of the tank. I just can't locate a place that carries new ones. I've called several RV stores in my area and none carry a replacement seal. Today I'll try some propane dealers like suggested. It shouldn't be so difficult to replace a tank seal IMO. It's the rubber seal you can see when looking inside the tank valve where the gas comes out which creates a seal when the propane hose is connected.

Good Luck since those parts are not availible for sale due to liability issues. You will need to replace the valve.

A new tank is the way to go I am sure. It is most likely ready in any case. They need hydrostatic testing/replacement at 12 years of service.

A new one is 60 bucks plus shipping:

LP Cylinder, 30 lbs. - $59.97
