Oil Tank Frequently Asked Questions
What Is A Bunded Oil Tank?
If you’re storing heating oil it is a requirement that you have a bunded tank. This essentially means that you have a tank within a tank with your heating oil being stored within the inner tank. This means that both tanks have to be damaged in order for a leak to occur.
How Do You Dispose Oil Tanks?
Oil tank disposal should be undertaken by specialists such as ourselves. This is due to the fact that the oil contained could be hazardous to the local environment and care must be taken in the disposal of the tank.
How Long Does Heating Oil Last?
How long your heating oil will depend on your own personal usage, such as how long you have your heating on each day, as well as the time of year. On average it’s expected that 500 litres will last 2-3 months during the winter months.
What Does OFTEC Stand For?
OFTEC is the Oil Firing Technical Association. Being registered with OFTEC means that the person is safe to be working on oil systems. It’s essentially gas safe for heating engineers who work on oil systems.
