Let’s explore steps you should take when installing your generator:
1. Invest in a Generator That Is the Right Size
Overloading your emergency backup generator can damage the device, destroy wires and cables, and even cause fires.

At Tri-County Water Services, our pros have the knowledge and expertise to provide reliable recommendations on the best generator based on your space, budget, and power demands.
2. Pay for a Professional Installation
A natural gas generator is your best ally in a blackout. However, if your unit is not installed correctly, you’ll be left to stumble in the dark after it fails. Even worse, some mistakes during installation can cause your unit to set on fire later, putting you and your family’s lives at risk.

We can also assist with obtaining the necessary permits required for installation.
3. Refuel and Maintain Regularly
Natural gas generators burn fuel to generate electricity for your home. When this fuel runs out, you won’t just be left to sit in the dark but also run the risk of damaging your unit. As a result, it’s important to monitor fuel levels and top up when necessary. Our pros can help refuel your unit and assist with other important maintenance tasks as part of our generator maintenance plans.
