Oil Tank Servicing and ReplacementOil Tanks need servicing – an annual inspection is recommended. If you have an older, metal oil tank it probably needs replacing. Even if you check and paint your tank every year you won’t know if there’s a problem until its too late and it begins to leak. Condensation can cause steel oil tanks to corrode from the inside taking you completely by surprise. Sometimes even modern oil tanks are badly installed sitting on inadequately prepared bases and never maintained since installation leading to them needing re-installation or even replacement. Suffolk Oil Solutions are experienced at both oil tank replacement and installation – see our oil tank installation page. We can replace and install different types of tanks made of metal or plastic, including Fuel Stations. We work to achieve a minimum of disruption to yourselves – leaving everything in good working order and the area as clean and tidy as we found it. We adhere to the official guidelines for installation which are there to protect you the client and the environment. We have included a link to the OFTEC free downloadable consumer guide for oil storage here. This document covers all the rules on location of your oil tank. Please contact Suffolk Oil Solutions to arrange a service, a FREE no obligation quote or for advice about your tank. You can also buy oil tanks on-line from our sister company website www.tanks2u.co.uk if you are prepared to install a new oil tank yourself.
