Tips for you as a gas distributor
1. Customer and complaint.
As gas distributor, You Face some challenges each day. The most common challenge is the challenge of customers complaining that the gas they bought from you did not spend the period of time they normally used it for.
They may not understand even when you try to tell them, you don’t produce gas. You only buy gas, or maybe you try to explain to them that it is as a result of their usage.
Now as you distribute all you have to do is check the cylinder for leakage. Put some air in the cylinder. Pour water all around it, most areas where it is welded or rusty. Now slowly look at the area where you put the water, to see if there is air trying to escape by forming bubbles.
Keep in mind that it doesn’t really matter if a cylinder is new or old either way, they can both have leakage which cause wastage of gas. Without the user noticing it or any smell of leakage of gas.
(if a cylinder has just a little single leakage at a spot, and leaks throughout the whole day. The gas in the cylinder is as good as finished)
This is very important for you to do in this case, because some people believe you did not sell them the complete product of what they purchased. Or you cheated them.
They will also try to use this to damage your business reputation.
2. Fake agent/agency.
Sometimes some people or groups of people come to your shop and try to impose or pretend that they are part of some agency which you know nothing about. This agency they may pretend to come from includes maybe a fire service department agency, security and safety department, gas shop inspection department, etc.
Some of these agencies may or may not actually even exist. When they pretend to come from these agencies and so As they may wear the agency uniform and I’d. And they are fake or imposters.
Their primary aim is to try and extort money from you.
What to do?

3. Filling of an unsafe cylinder.
An unsafe cylinder is a cylinder that is very old and can even getting rusty. Filling this type of types of cylinder can be unsafe and dangerous.
At this point, it doesn’t have to do with whether the cylinder has leakage or not. As there is a possibility that it may explode.
This is a result of the cylinder being weak and not also strong anymore.
Gas has a lot of pressure, and this can probably cause the cylinder to explode during refining.
Please when anyone brings any cylinder to your shop for refilling.
if you observe the cylinder is old and unsafe. Just tell the person that you can’t refill the cylinder.
Filling stations also do this when a cylinder is brought for refilling and it’s unsafe, they do not refill it. They ask the person to get a new cylinder.
Note: Always ensure your safety and the safety of others come first.
These are what you encounter as a gas seller on a daily basis.
4. Quantity purchase not completed after-sales
When you lose some kg before you finish selling a 50kg cylinder. Try buying gas from another gas plant and see the difference as different plant buy gas from different deport.
