Oil Tank and Line Safety
Several factors go into having a safe and secure oil tank and line.
- The tank must be free-standing on its legs, without support or help of walls or other objects
- The underside of the tank must be checked for leaks
- Corrosion and rust can weaken the integrity of the steel
- Oil lines must be sleeved when placed underground Non-sleeved lines must be run overhead
- Unused fill and vent pipes should be removed or capped to prevent against accidental fill
