Oil Tank FAQs
On our FAQ page, find advice on choosing the optimal tank, regulations, gauges, preparation, maintenance and more. Our team is always on hand to answer any specific questions as well.
Deciding between a plastic or steel heating oil tank comes down to a couple of things. Firstly, plastic tanks are cheaper than steel and are commonly more resistant to extreme weather.
Secondly, steel tanks offer greater security and protection from thieves, thanks to their drill-resistant outer shell. Whether you should choose one or the other depends on your budget, needs and tank location.
The best way to ensure heating oil tanks last as long as possible is through regular servicing and maintenance. Replacing or repairing a faulty oil tank is more expensive than investing in the proper maintenance of a heating oil tank.
The material the tank is made from is also an important factor, with our steel tanks coming with a five-year warranty versus plastic tanks that come with two years. However, maintaining and protecting your heating oil tank should make these last much longer.
Here at SG Tanks, we provide a wide range of sizes in our home heating oil tanks, whether they are plastic, steel, bunded or single-skin.
Our oil tanks range in size from 650 litres to 10,000 litres, so whatever your needs are, we can meet them. We work with you to find the perfect installation location at your home to ensure that your heating oil tank fits perfectly with your lifestyle.
Heating oil tanks are commonly placed in gardens or on the exterior of a home, but they come with some safety restrictions. They must be positioned at least 0.76 metres away from non-fire-resistant boundaries, like wooden fences and 0.6 metres from any non-boundary screenings like trees or plants.
Heating oil tanks must also be positioned no less than 1.8 metres from a building, eaves, doorway or window. Thanks to years of experience, our expert installation team will always ensure your oil tank complies with UK installation regulations.
