  WHEN TO HAVE YOUR OLD TANK REPLACED

If you have an old steel oil tank that is showing signs of age, rusting or even starting to leak, or may be have an old plastic oil tank, it is always best to regularly keep a check on them.

  HOW TO CHECK FOR SIGNS OF AGEING

Make sure that there is no whitening, cracking or splits appearing as this could in time lead to it leaking, or when checking you may also find there is a bulging or deformation of the tank.

THE PROCEDURE

Once we've assessed your situation and selected the tank we'll book in your installation, here's what to expect:

  We'll notify you 48 hours in advance with the time we'll arrive.

  Once we're on site we'll assess the condition of your tank and oil, the replacement process begins with emptying your old tank.

  Usable heating oil will be pumped into our holding tank, contaminated oil and water will be removed for disposal.

  We can then disconnect and remove the tank for decommissioning, we offer the option for us to take away and dispose of your old oil tank.

  If required, a paving slab base, a concrete base or block piers can be installed to accommodate the replacement tank.

  We can also supply and install fire protection for the tank, should it be required to meet the current regulations.

  Your new tank will then be positioned, connected up and clean fuel pumped into it. 

  The fuel system will be primed and we will make sure that your boiler is running again.  

  HOW OFTEN DOES A TANK NEED TO BE REPLACED

The earliest you should need to replace your old oil tank is about 5 years after installation. Often it is quite a lot longer than this, much of it depends on the initial investment in the tank and how much it's used. 

  HOW MUCH DOES INSTALLATION COST

This depends on the current situation, type of tank being removed and installed, whether the oil feed line needs replacing what legal requirements the task entails. A guide price for installation fees is anything from £250 to £2,000. You individual situation can be assessed for a FREE, no obligation quote.

  HOW MUCH DOES A NEW OIL TANK COST
