Correctly track and document a run out (or any Interruption of Service)
November 6, 2015
When your customer has a run out (or any Interruption of Service occurrence), it’s critical to document a good leak check prior to putting the system back in operation. That process provides security that the system is gas tight. P3 ensures that you will have the right documentation in case you ever need it:
When a run out occurs and your company can not document a sufficient leak check, tag the system and shut off service.
How to Tag the System – Attach one copy of the completed Warning Call Tag to the container service valve and another copy to a conspicuous location at the building, such as an entrance door. The final copy should be brought back and uploaded to P3 and retained in the customer file at the office.
What the Warning Call Tag communicates to the customer:
- We have shut off your service
- You could incur serious injury if you try to turn on the service yourself
- Call us so we can turn on your service right way

Enter that documentation into P3. From the main menu, choose Enter → Interruption of Service Inspection
Be sure to mark that the system is now tagged, enter the tag number, and upload an image of the tag.
Your dashboard monitors your outstanding tags.
Complete and document a good leak check and remove the physical Warning Call Tag.
- Enter another “Interruption of Service Inspection.” This time, be sure to identify that the system is NOT tagged and enter a good leak check.
