Oil Tank Corrosion

Spending on home renovations, whilst ignoring their corroded oil tank has proved costly to one home owner.

Following from our recent blog on managing the risk of an oil spill incident, Step 1 suggested one of the possible sources of risk of an oil spill was: Damage, corrosion and wear and tear on pipework and metal oil tanks.

We were recently called to a newly renovated residence, following an oil leak from a corroded oil tank. No expense was spared in the house renovations, however by not upgrading the corroded oil tank, the home owner is now faced with unforeseen costs as the oil has seeped all around the new utility room which will have to be dug up and remediated.
