From commercial tanks to domestic fuel tanks, we’ve got you covered!
Tate Oil supply and install a variety of fuel tanks for commercial and domestic use, suitable for every budget. Ranging from 2,500 litres to 80,000 litres, our oil tanks are crafted and installed by fully trained OFTEC accredited heating engineers, and designed to work seamlessly with your property. We also provide oil boiler and tank servicing*, tank cleaning and OFTEC inspections, making Tate Oil your one-stop shop for all your oil tank needs!
Whether your fuel tank is single or double-bunded, you’ll need to keep a close eye on the structural integrity: the harsh British weather can cause your tank to swell, and in some cases, the ever-changing temperatures can actually crack your tank! If your oil tank is over 8 years’ old, we’d recommend a full OFTEC tank inspection (or boiler and tank service), so our experts can quickly spot any damage or signs or deterioration.
5 signs you may need a new tank!
When looked after properly, your tank can last well over 20 years – but without proper care and attention, they can soon be causing more problems than they’re worth. Our delivery team are fully trained to spot the signs of damage to your tank, and if they deem it unsafe, your tank will be condemned. Worried about the condition of your tank? Here are 5 signs to look out for!
- Warping – a slight or noticeable difference in the shape of your oil tank.
- Cracks or dents – damage to the exterior bund that could cause a leak.
- Hairline cracks – a tiny crack in the structure, which affects the stability of the oil tank.
- Smell of oil – any smell of oil should be reported immediately.
- Discolouration of tank – from water sitting on the tank, tree sap or oil seeping out.
In most cases, when a crack is found, OFTEC guidelines suggest condemning the tank – stopping you from using heating oil or diesel until a replacement is installed. We recommend booking in for an annual OFTEC oil boiler and tank service, so you can keep your heating system in full working order! Based in Yorkshire or Lincoln?
