Got Gas was founded by Reynaert Dielwart in 2013 with the aim and vision of modernising a seemingly lethargic industry when it comes to online sales.
For the record, Got Gas only delivers bottles filled by the refineries, meaning they are filled correctly and still hold their public liability insurance.
Is LPG Safe?
LP Gas is used extensively in the USA, Australia and Europe. When installed by a certified installer, it has proven to be a safe and convenient energy source. All LPG appliances should always be SABS approved and should show the LPGSASA "Safe Appliance" sticker. This is important as most gas accidents occur as a result of the use of unsafe appliances or the incorrect use and maintanance of gas appliances.
All LP Gas bottles you receive from Got Gas (Pty) Ltd are from refineries and have been pressure tested to limits well above the filling and storage pressures, and are tested everytime they are filled. All our gas bottles are safe to stand in direct sunlight.
Illegal (Rogue) Fillers
Any bottle filled by a company that is not duly authorised by the refining company the cylinders belong to, is considered to be an illegal filler.
Whats the problem with rogue fillers?
1. There is no guarantee of the amount of gas in the bottle
2. Rogue fillers do not do any maintenance to the bottles or testing.
3. Your insurance will not pay out should an event occur from an illegally filled bottle.
Illegally filled bottles are easy to spot:
1. They have clear seals over the cylinder valve. Legitimate fillers always have printed seals that match the brand of bottle.
