Oil Tank Replacement
When was the last time you checked your oil tank?
If you have an old metal tank it probably needs replacing. Even if you check and paint your tank every year you won't know there's a problem until it begins to leak. Condensation causes the tank to corrode from the inside taking you completely by surprise and that’s were ENPH can help you with the service of supplying and fitting you our customer with a new oil tank to suit your needs.
Regulations imposed on oil tank installations are for your benefit. An oil leak is a very costly thing to clean up. And something that can be prevented with having your tank checked regularly. Large fines have also been imposed in the past. The main causes of most incidents are badly positioned tanks or they have been put on badly prepared bases and never maintained since installation. An oil tank should be inspected annually then any potential problems can be remedied before they become a major incident, at ENPH we always check our customers oil tanks when undertaking a annual service on our customers oil boiler as part of the service.
If you store oil of any kind at your premises you need to comply with new government regulations, this could apply to you.
Oil is a common and highly visible form of pollution. It is poisonous to fish and other wildlife and smothers plants. Just two litres of oil could make the volume of fresh water needed to fill an Olympic size swimming pool undrinkable. Oil accounts for over one quarter of all pollution incidents in the UK each year. Many drains lead directly to rivers, streams or lakes. If you allow oil to enter these drains, it has the same effect as pouring it directly into our watercourse so it's important to keep an eye on the condition of your oil tank check it now!
At ENPH we will replace your tank with the minimum disruption to yourselves with minimum fuss and at competitive rates.
