Learn how to safely turn on and off the fuel supply to your torch. Lighting your torch is simple if you remember the acronym P.O.O.P.

 

1. P = Propane  

When lighting the torch, turn on the propane (or any other fuel as) supply first. Then strike a spark to ignite the fuel. 

2. O = Oxygen 

Turn on the oxygen supply. 

3. O = Oxygen 

To turn off the flame, reverse the order. Turn off the oxygen first. 

4. P = Propane

Then turn off the propane (or other fuel).
