Heating Oil Spill - Cracked Tank Moira
The homeowners were out in the garden when they noticed a strong smell of oil next to their oil tank. Upon inspection they noticed a split in their plastic oil tank, which was leading to a release of oil. They immediately tried to tape it up and capture as much as possible. They immediately contacted SSS Alleviate to help. We immediately mobilised to Moira and quickly discovered a small crack in the tank close to the fittings. We then undertook an emergency oil transfer to secure the remaining oil in a temporary oil storage tank. The temporary tank was connected to the existing oil line, so heat could be reinstated at the property. A replacment tank was then installed about a week later.
If you have any concerns in regards to potential oil loss from oil tank, oil feed pipe or oil boiler contact SSS Alleviate immediately on 07391270659.
