Water in Oil Tank Belfast

Following a boiler breakdown at a property in Belfast, it was confirmed that there was water inside the oil tank. Oil Heating Specialists SSS Alleviate were appointed to help. We attended the property the next 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 used our pump to remove 7 drums of water! 

The filter was cleaned 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 boiler, which fired and in not time heat was back in the home. 

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.
