Whether you’re replacing your existing tank or installing a new one, our experienced engineers offer the highest level of service. Following a consultation, we’ll advise you on the best location of your new oil tank taking into account several factors:

  • Access for deliveries
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Oil pipe laying
  • Neighbouring land use
  • Fire risk assessment
  • Water contamination assessment
  • Aesthetics

Our engineers are registered with OFTEC and will therefore ensure that your new oil tank adheres to all government regulations. Your base will be built from non-combustible materials and will be strong enough to support a full tank of oil. It will also need to extend at least 30cm beyond all sides of the tank. (Click here for a full list of OFTEC regulations).

Additional to the strict OFTEC guidelines are the government regulations regarding storing oil at your home or business.

You can be certain that our engineers take all government and trade guidelines and, more importantly, your safety very seriously. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and always ensure that our installations are executed to the highest standard.

If your current installation does not meet regulations, or if you’re looking to install a new tank, then call today. Our expert team will be able to offer you advice and what services are right for you.


Maintaining Your Oil Tank

There are several things that you can routinely check for to make sure your tank is safe and secure. For example, you can routinely check for cracks and splits, bulging, rust, deep scratches and faulty gauges. If your oil usage suddenly increases or there is a strong smell of oil, it could indicate a leak.

If you notice any of these, you should immediately call an OFTEC registered engineer to assess your tank. In such an event, our office can be contacted on 01903 726295.

However, it’s important to stress that these checks should not replace a regular annual maintenance from a qualified engineer. See our oil tank servicing page for more information on how we can help.
