If you are looking to purchase a new oil tank or looking to replace an existing one, you must firstly make sure that you are complying with the latest regulations, you can find these through Oftec or building regulations via the link below.

When choosing the right tank for you, we can help you throughout the process with the following:

  • Checking the environment for where you would place your tank.
  • Check the base is right: Building Regulations advise that all oil tanks need to be installed on a stable and level base which extends a minimum of 300m past the widest point of the tank.
  • Installation of the tank: We can assist with the installation to make sure this is done correctly to go alongside your warranty and to also reduce any future issues or risks.
  • Removing your old tank safely and efficiently under the correct license.

When looking for a new oil tank it is important to check the environment around where it will be placed as any issues may affect where you can put your tank even in the existing position. The positioning of your oil tank must comply with the latest Building Regulations first, so it is best to check these before any further action is taken. It is also a good idea to have your tank installed in a place where you can keep an eye on it. At this moment in time, oil theft is on the rise, so it is important to keep a close on this.
