Out With the Old, in With a New Oil Tank
With advances in technology, such as corrosion-resistant paint and double-walled units, modern heating oil storage tanks are more durable than ever. While issues are rare, it is still important to regularly inspect your tank for signs of internal corrosion.
At the same time, you can see to the safety of your tank by checking it throughout the season, especially if it is indoors where our delivery drivers can’t see it. Here are a few things to keep an eye out for when you are going through your inspections at home.
You May Need to Replace Your Oil Storage Tank If:
- Your tank is wet/leaking- If your tank is stored indoors and you find a wet spot under or around it, this is an indication that there could be corrosion occurring inside your tank. Call Southside Fuel at (804)231-5798 to schedule an inspection.
- Damaged lines - The pipes that connect to your home can become damaged over time. If you notice any cracks or tearing in the rubber tubing, call Southside Fuel.
- Overexposure to severe weather- Your tank can be affected by snow and rain. Make sure you are monitoring your tank and if you suspect any damage, contact Southside Fuel immediately. Our drivers will also assess the condition of your outdoor tank with each delivery.
