A Tank Check With Rix Petroleum
The best way to protect your oil boiler is by servicing your heating oil storage tank regularly. It is very likely that at some point, your heating oil tank will be found to contain water. The cause of this is usually condensation, occurring naturally. Rainwater could also enter the tank if it develops a fault in the openings or seals, or develops rust or even cracks in the body.
Water in your heating oil storage tank can be detrimental to the performance of your heating oil system and, in some cases, may lead to a complete breakdown. If water is present in your heating oil tank, it could freeze up when temperatures drop, resulting in blocked pipework which could cause severe damage or loss of heat when you need it most.
Home Heating Oil Tank Replacement And Servicing
Not only is having your tank inspected regularly essential to control the condensation and water in your tank, but it can also help to diagnose other potential problems. A routine tank check should, therefore, be carried out in regular intervals, similar to that of a car or boiler service.
During your heating oil tank replacement, we will also treat your tank with Rix Anti-Bug, an additive used to kill and inhibit microbiological growth that could cause damage to your system. We will also replace worn sight tubing or install a contents gauge, so that your tank’s fill level remains clear, preventing costly run-outs or overfills.
