The Work Process
When carrying out a complete removal and new installation, we often follow a set procedure. Firstly, the contents of the old tank/failed tank will be emptied of all good, clean oil into a temporary tank - the boiler will be switched off, but if an Aga is present, we can keep these running during works. We will uplift the old tank and check existing base for integrity and bring up to regulatory status – if a base is non-regulatory it will result in the new tank’s warranty being void. Supply and fit new tank – all our tanks come complete with ultrasonic contents gauge,which consist of a part inside the tank reading the oil level which communicates this level to another unit plugged into an electrical socket in the premises, allowing the client to monitor fuel levels from the comfort of indoors and a new filter tap at no extra cost. We test the existing oil-line for integrity, achieve positive test and connect to new tank and then transfer all good, clean fuel into the new tank. We will then purge, run and test the boiler (boiler must have been regularly serviced and be running when we arrive). We dispose of old tanks to registered recycling centres – we have a waste carrier license & recycling certificate.
All above would usually be between £1300.00 - £1900.00 + VAT depending on size of bunded tank and how much base work needs doing. Single-skin tanks price would be between £1000.00 - £1500.00 + VAT. We prefer to install bunded tanks that comply with more regulations than single-skin tanks.
Allowing for Open Positioning
When you have a standard tank installed, it is important to ensure that it is not too near any boundaries or properties. However, if this is a necessity, we are able to build fire-walls, usually made from concrete posts and concrete panels being non-combustible. The walls are primarily erected at the same time as the tank is installed, meaning that it may be positioned almost anywhere.
