If your home’s fuel tank is nearing the end of its useful lifespan, we’re here to help. We offer a complete fuel tank replacement service that covers everything from removing your existing tank and safely disposing of its contents to installing a replacement.

Over time, your domestic oil tank can become worn out, leaving you with a heating system that doesn’t work as well as it should. On average, most domestic oil tanks last for 10 years of use, meaning that you’ll likely need to replace your home’s tank at some point.

You might also need to replace your home’s oil tank if it’s become unsightly, if you’re building an extension to your home or for any other reason.

As an experienced, ISO 9001 and PAS 43 certified business, we’re here to make replacing your home’s fuel tank as stress-free as possible. To find out more about our fuel tank installation and replacement services, please continue reading below or contact us on 0800 799 9739.

Our Domestic Fuel Tank Replacement Process

Replacing your oil tank is a complicated process, meaning it’s always best to call in our expert team. Our tank replacement process involves several steps, from viewing your home’s oil tank and working out the best removal approach to draining hazardous materials and more.

Hazardous Materials Removal

Our process begins with removing any remaining kerosene or gas oil from your oil tank. Even if your tank’s fuel gauge indicates that it’s empty, it’s still likely that there is remaining fuel oil inside the tank that could pose a safety risk if it’s not properly removed.

Before we remove your old fuel tank, our OFTEC trained team will thoroughly clean the tank in order to ensure that any and all flammable, environmentally-hazardous materials are removed before removal work begins.

Fuel Tank Removal

Once we’ve safely removed and disposed of any hazardous materials that were inside your old fuel tank, we’ll start the removal process.

Depending on the location of your oil tank, our team will either remove it using an excavator or mounted crane, or using a more specialised technique.

If your domestic oil tank is installed in a location that’s difficult to access, our technicians might need to safely and carefully cut it into pieces to remove it with minimal disruption to your home and property.

For safety reasons, our team will complete this process using cold cutting techniques and safe, spark-free tools.

After your fuel tank has been removed from your property, we’ll provide it to our trusted recycling partner. Instead of being wasted, your old oil tank will be put through an environmentally-friendly recycling process, allowing its raw materials to be put back to use.

Fuel Tank Replacement

After we’ve removed your old fuel tank, our OFTEC trained team will install a replacement tank on your property. Depending on your needs, we can either install your new fuel tank in the same location as the old tank, or move it to a different location on your site.

We offer a range of fuel tanks to meet the needs of any household or residential building. Our experienced team can help you learn more about the most suitable tank for your home based on your house size, usage of heating and your budget.

After installation, your new oil tank will be covered by a six year warranty backed by OFTEC to give you total confidence and peace of mind.
