Initial Site Visit and Assessment
We were called to a site visit on behalf of Certas Fuels to assess a customers tank needs. Once there, we found the old tank had signs of cracking and a lot of wear and tear. For sure a new tank was needed. We put together a quote for a new install, and provided shiny new tank options to the customer. With the customers acceptance, we were able to get all the necessary materials and the tank ordered ready for the day.
The Day of the Job
The day of the job, and we started by syphoning out the existing plastic single skin oil storage tank into a temporary holding tank whilst we worked on site. Water and sludge is also removed at this stage for proper disposal once we have left the site. With the tank emptied, we removed it from site so we could get to work preparing the base.
To comply with current OFTEC regulations, we knocked down the existing concrete base and piers, levelled off the area, and laid a new base to accomodate the new tank.
And the Job is Done
Once the new base was ready we installed the new tank of choice – a Titan ESSL1000 bunded oil storage tank. With the new tank in place we reconnected the existing oil fired appliances and set up a new Watchman. After a thorough clean up we were done.
