Thank you. That makes sense.
What about the fuel line that is installed underground that has had diesel running through it? Any idea if we have to rip that up and instal one designed only for propane? Or is there a way to clean out the fuel line and safely use propane in it?

I have no idea what the underground fuel line is............maybe it is copper, like propane lines are. The line is not the issue- the tank is. Plus, YOU are, your spouse, and family- that is most important! Bottom line, YOU need to contact a supplier, and installer, to handle your propane issues. It is nothing to be handled by an amateur!

You need a completely different set up for propane. Propane is actually boiling inside the tank at about -50 degs. and that's what causes the pressure to build up to around 250 PSI. You want to have a certified tank and the right line to the heater. Talk to your propane supplier or the heater manufacturer.
