More advice for oil tank owners

2011-08-01 11:36:03

Online oil tank retailer has published a set of guidelines on how to ensure your oil tank lasts for many years without the need for replacement or repair.

The experts at TankDepot urge heating oil users to have their heating oil system and boiler maintained by an OFTEC-trained technician regularly in order to foresee and prevent damage and faults. Signing up to a maintenance service like the one offered by Team Energy, for example, will help to give heating oil users peace of mind through the coldest month sof the year and prevent expensive replacements and repairs.

The recommendations also advise those with steel heating oil tanks to check for corrosion regularly. Those with plastic tanks also need to be on the look-out for signs of cracks and crazing– if these are spotted, a tank needs to be replaced immediately to prevent leaks.

Fitting an oil tank with an alarm that sounds when the oil levels fall suddenly, such as the Watchman Alarm, will also help to prevent leaks and can help keep tanks protected against heating oil thieves. These alarms are available from local CPL Petroleum depots nationwide.
