Why do oil tanks need repairing?

Oil tanks are hardy pieces of equipment specifically designed to keep heating oil secure in outdoor environments; from the peak of summer to the depths of winter. While designed to protect the oil against the elements for extended periods and cold weather, plastic tanks can become brittle. Each oil tank has an expected lifespan of 15-20 years with good maintenance.

Oil tank cracking is a common restoration issue caused by exposure to extreme temperatures; this can cause leaks and boiler breakdowns. We find that oil tank corrosion is another regular repair request due to a build-up of acidic bacteria and increased contact with water from cleaning and condensation, which can leave your heating system running sub-optimally.

Quick response time – An SG Tanks promise

We understand that seeing an oil tank leaking can be cause for concern, which is why we respond quickly to ensure that your emergency is dealt with effectively. So, if your oil tank is split, we can pay a visit to your home to pump the tank before the problem gets worse.

Your needs are important to us which is why we are proud of the strong reputation for repairs we have built based on swift, efficient and high-quality workmanship. Our trained engineers are adept at quick oil tank restorations, from diagnosing problems in situ to stopping leaks in their tracks.

SG Tanks are on hand to help if your oil tank is:

  • Leaking
  • Cracked
  • Corroded
  • In need of restoration
  • Reaching the end of its lifespan

How does restoration increase oil tank lifespan?

Repair work and restoration are essential for extending the life of your oil tank in the wake of damage like cracks and corrosion. Our team is sensitive to your needs and we will complete a thorough assessment of the damage your oil tank has.

This enables us to accurately diagnose the problem with your tank, whether there is a leak due to a crack or corrosion or if the oil tank is suffering from a build-up of sludge deposits caused by bacteria, water or dirt.

If your oil tank is unstable and unable to be restored in compliance with safety regulations, we will not simply walk away. Instead, we can provide essential support by draining your tank of its oil, to prevent further leaking, remove the old tank and replace it with a new one that’s fit for purpose.
