Project Description

Oil tanks

We at PlumbCORE are OFTEC qualified to install all types of oil tanks and issue the appropriate certification on completion.

With any metal oil tank you can check and paint your tank every year but you won’t know there’s a problem until it begins to leak. Condensation causes the tank to corrode from the inside taking you completely by surprise.

If you don’t already, why not replace your oil now for a plastic bunded oil tank? Such an oil tank is weather resistant but is bunded, meaning if the oil was to ever leak from its store, it would only ever go into the outer bund/tank which has an alarm installed in case of any leaks.

Oil leaks can case large environmental damage to wildlife and in turn if the case is traced back to the owner of the tank costly fines can be issued by various councils and organisations.

Replacement Tanks

PlumbCORE are OFTEC qualified to Install all types of oil tank and issue the appropriate certification on completion.

Oil tanks can come in all sort of shapes and sizes, but before any work can commence surveys by our team are required to check oil tank locations and your requirements.

What the process entails:

  • Survey of your property and explain the requirements
  • 
Transfer the fuel from the existing tank in to a holding tank
  • Remove and dispose of the old tank in accordance with current regulations
  • Construct/modify the base as required to support the new tank
  • Install the new tank, complete with a new valve, filter and gauge
  • Connect to the existing oil line
  • Transfer the fuel to the new tank
  • 
Bleed the system
  • Notify OFTEC (governing body of oil Storage tanks) of a new installation

Oil Tank Accessories
