Providing Home Heating Oil, Propane and Other Heating Fuels Since 1969

We Offer Oil Tank Replacement & Removal Of Underground Tanks


Replacement oil tanks are often installed above ground after the removal of the old underground heating oil tank

An oil tank replacement can be necessary for a number of reasons. Sometimes the replacement of fuel tanks is due in part to heating failure. Other times, dangerous spills occur that contaminate the soil and even the water supply. This puts a huge environmental pollution hazard in your hands. Oil spill clean ups can cost tens of thousands of dollars, and your house insurance policy will not always cover these costs.

The removal of an underground heating oil tank does not take as long as people often fear. Still, there is a process that must be followed and times when local authorities must be notified. Once our technicians locate the underground oil tank, they can begin digging—either by backhoe or by hand, depending on the surrounding area. Any digging, though, might require a permit from your town. We can help you determine if this is the case.

Once the tank is located, we first remove the remaining heating oil from it and clean the tank. Then, the tank is removed from the ground. At this point, the surrounding soil must be inspected to check for any contamination. If there are any signs of spillage, the Health Department must be contacted immediately. Sometimes, an underground oil tank cannot be removed and thus must be abandoned. This means that it is drained, cleaned, inspected for contamination, and then filled with sand or gravel and left underground.

Usually, your replacement oil tank will be installed above ground. You may choose to have the new aboveground fuel tank inside your home (such as in the basement) or outside. However, indoor fuel tanks are protected from weather, which is a big plus. Cold temperatures, rain, and other harsh conditions can affect an outdoor oil tank’s performance. For this reason, it is best to install your replacement indoors, if possible. Aboveground tanks come in a variety of sizes and shapes so that you have some freedom when it comes to where you want to put the replacement.
