Water in Oil Tank Belfast

Following a boiler breakdown at a domestic property in Belfast, the property owner called a local heating engineer who suggested that water in the oil tank was causing the issues with the oil pump at the boiler. No further repairs could be undertake until the water was removed from the oil tank.  

Oil Heating Specialists, SSS Alleviate were contacted to investigate, remove the water and return heat to the home. We attended the property the following day and first of all tested the tank using water detection paste. We could see that there was a huge amount of water inside the tank. We then rigged up our specialised pumping equipment and safely extracted 140L of oily water from the bottom of the oil tank. The tank was again tested using our water detection paste and we confirmed no further water was present.  

The oil filter and oil line were also cleaned out to ensure no more water entered the boiler. Once we went to test the system, we could see that the pump inside the burner had been badly impacted by the water. Unfortunately, this cannot be repaired and a replacement pump was required, which we immediately fitted. We also noticed that the flexible oil hose at the boiler was badly corroded and this was also replaced in order to reduce the risk of oil loss. 

We tested the oil boiler, which immediately fired and in no time heat was back in the home, to the delight of the homeowner.
