Why Inspect Your Oil Tank?

Like all parts of your heating system, your fuel oil tank can become worn over time, especially if it’s used heavily. On average, domestic fuel tanks lasts for up to 10 years, with maintenance an essential part of preventing leaks, microbes and other damage.

The function lifespan of commercial tanks can vary depending on the tank’s installation location, maintenance and a range of other factors.

Through regular inspections and maintenance, you can identify issues with your fuel tank before they cause damage. This can help you get a longer functional life from your fuel tank before it’s replaced or decommissioned.

Regular inspection and maintenance is also essential for reducing the risk of leaks, which affect both the environment and people that live and/or work on your property. Leaks can cause major damage to the environment and often require a costly, intensive response.
