What To Consider If You Need A New Oil Tank

new storage tank for heating oil

Selecting a new tank

  • You need to select a tank of a size that will accommodate two fills per year
  • Top outlet bunded tanks offer the greatest environmental protection against oil escaping through leaks or being overfilled
  • As the owner, you should ensure that your new tank is installed to current building regulations by a competent installer, or your home insurance may not cover any loss
  • Oil tanks installation work should be done by a person registered with a competent persons scheme, i.e. OFTEC registered, or advice taken from your local authority building control department.

What should I do with my old tank?

  • Ideally, a redundant tank should be emptied, removed from site by a licenced waste carrier and disposed of at a site licenced to take in hazardous waste.
  • Any redundant fill pipes should also be removed to avoid a fuel delivery driver inadvertently connecting on to it.
  • If it is not practical to remove a tank and associated fill pipework, the tank and fill pipe should be securely capped and labelled “DO NOT FILL”.
