Oil tanks are typically cylindrical metal receptacles which provide storage for oil used to heat your home. They can either be underground or above ground, with the most common type being the latter. Oil tanks should last a long time because of their thick walls, but after ten years or so, it might be a good idea to replace them with newer, more modern models.
Why Do Oil Tanks Need To Be Replaced At 10 Years?
After ten years of use, the steel in the walls begins to rust and leak. This is caused by corrosion due to exposure to elements such as moisture, oxygen, chlorine ions, or other chemicals that are found in the environment. If you wait too long, the corrosion within the walls of your tank can cause it to break down and damage your property or even hurt someone.
What Are The Symptoms That My Oil Tanks Need Replacing Or Repair?
There are a number of symptoms that will let you know if you need to replace your oil tank, such as leaks, damp areas that form around the tank, corrosion of the steel walls and floor, or rusting.
