Storage Tank FAQs

If you’re not sure if you’re ready for a replacement heating oil tank, there are a few things you can look out for:

  • Are there any cracks or bulges in your new tank?
  • Look for signs of rust or faded. It could be brittle and more likley to crack
  • Is it working less efficiently and using more heating oil than before?
  • If you’ve noticed any leaks, even small ones, it’s definitely time for a new tank.

For a tank that heats your home for years, it’s a good idea to look after it regularly by:

  • Keeping an eye out for any cracks, rust or discoloration
  • Making sure vents and gauges are closed to keep out any bugs
  • Keeping it on a level surface
  • Checking pipework and looking for spills or leaks
  • Having an oil spill kit to hand just in case

How long an oil tank lasts can depend on how well it is looked after and maintained. Generally speaking, an oil tank should last around 20 years if it is well looked after. Regularly looking for cracks, rust or discoloration and having any problems looked at by a professional can help your tank last longer.
