Welcome to the Retailer’s Section

In order to get the best sales results we recommend that anyone who might be involved in selling to a customer should familiarize themselves with the product. We also recommend that you print out and mount the two PDF files linked to your right. They can then be shown to customers and also to help staff understand how the PGG works and should be used.

Specifically this means:

Understanding How it Works

When Propane is being used it cools down the metal tank. Most customers will be aware of this because they will have seen a condensation line on the tank wall when they start grilling. The PPG uses this cooling effect to measure small temperature changes over time. When the electronics senses that the liquid level is at or below approximately the position of the upper sensor it will start to play its little tune.

It will continue playing while the gas is switched on and for a while after it is switched off. If the user wants to cancel the alarm he simply needs to momentarily break the battery circuit. This can be done by tapping the PPG on a hard surface.

Knowing the Main Advantages Over any Competition

The PGG is the only product that actively warns the user in time to finish cooking. It will play its alarm once the gas has been switched on and is running low. It typically starts to warn when the liquid level is around 20%.

How to Install the Product

Remove PGG from its packaging. Slide the cover back and insert the batteries. The PGG will play the tune once and flash its LEDs. Place the PGG at the lower end of the tank. Just above the curve. Make sure that the location is away from direct sunlight.

The Tips and Hints

These are shown on the web site but not on the instructions that come inside the pack. It is worth checking these out and telling any customer to do the same. Tips and hints are also included in the promotional leaflet which is downloadable as a PDF file (located to your right). This will avoid unnecessary problems in the future. The Instructions and Tips and Hints are downloadable below and can be printed off so that any customer can read them when they buy.

Compare to Other Products

The main advantage of the PGG is that it actively warns the user in time to finish what is cooking. It is the only product that can do this.

Pressure Gauges

Very commonly used, but they cannot give a timely warning because the pressure of liquefied propane does not change with the volume of liquid. So the only time the gauge starts to drop is when the liquid is all gone and all that is left is some pressurized gas.

Disadvantages are:

  • Very short warning period. Typically less than a few minutes.
  • No audible warning so user has to remember to check the gauge regularly when it is being used.
  • Requires installation in the gas line.
  • No reminder system when tank needs refilling.

Temperature Strips

These work on the same principle as the PGG but without the active alarm. So the user has to remember to check the strip some time after switching on the gas. Additionally these types are prone to interference from direct sunlight and often do not make good thermal contact with the tank wall. They are widely regarded as a gimmick. (See Amazon reviews)

Weighing Scales

This is a good method of determining how much gas is left if:

  • The user knows the empty weight of the tank. And differing tanks have different Tare weights. So not so easy to get right.
  • If he remembers to check with the scale before cooking starts.
  • Again there is no active alarm, so the user is dependent on checking the scale.
