As we are now in the middle of summer, now is the perfect time to carry out any inspections and decide whether the time is here to invest in a new oil tank.
Many residential and commercial buildings rely heavily on storing oil for heating during the winter, so it is nice when the summer finally comes around and oil usage decreases. During this season, when tanks are less likely to be used, now is a good time to survey the condition of your tank and have any maintenance work carried out, or to replace the tank altogether.
Inspecting Your Tank
Inspections should only be carried out by competent personnel and after every refill. If your tank sees little to no use in the summer, it is still important to carry our inspections for any signs of damage that can rear its head in the colder months. For more information, please view our tank maintenance guide here.
Any signs of damage such as corrosion and leaks should be flagged up as a matter of urgency. As the dependency on heating oil tanks is at its lowest in summer, it provides ample opportunity to carry out any work while keeping any inconvenience down to a minimum.
Replacing or Upgrading
It may be the case that your premise requires a completely new oil tank due to the amount of wear and tear sustained over the years. You could also benefit from the installation of a new tank simply because you have outgrown your original tank and your needs are not the same as they once were.
At Tuffa, we offer a wide range of tanks suitable for all premises large and small. Our tanks are ideal for storing oil, fuel and other chemicals, and can be manufactured to your specific requirements with our bespoke service. Our team will work with you to design the perfect tank for your needs, ensuring that we meet and exceed your expectations.
Steel and Plastic
Our wide range of oil tanks are available both in plastic and steel to suit all budgets, and are all compliant with safety regulations and are tested to meet the requirements of the Oftec Fuel Storage Tank Test scheme.
If you would like more information on maintaining your oil tank this summer, or if you are interested in upgrading to a new model, please call the Tuffa Tanks team today on 01889 567700 and we will be more than happy to assist.
