What do I do if my tank is leaking?
The first step should be to contact us (01837 55700) so that we can arrange for one of our tank engineers to visit you and contain the leak. They will have the expertise to determine what course of action is necessary and who to contact in case of an environmental emergency. Once you have called us, you can take basic steps to contain the leak and reduce any possible impact by doing the following:
• Wear protective gloves before handling
any items covered in fuel oil
• If possible, place a container under the leak to catch the oil
• If there is a small crack in the tank from which fuel is leaking, a bar of soap can be rubbed into the crack can
temporarily restrict the flow of oil.
How long do tanks last for?
Our bunded oil tanks and fuel dispensers come with a 10 year manufacturers’ warranty and are produced from the best base materials and the most reliable fittings. Each tank is tested ‘in house’ by the manufacturer before they leave the factory and will last for many years beyond the expiration of the warranty if properly maintained.
Do I have to be home for a tank installation?
It is always advisable to have someone on the property when our engineers complete the installation.
