Heating oil tank inspections

Prevention is better than cure. That’s why it’s important to have an oil tank inspection and your heating oil storage tank checked by a trained Silvey tankCHECK technician to avoid costly problems at a later date.

Avoiding problems is easy with our tank inspection service - Silvey tankCHECK.

All Silvey drivers are trained oil tank technicians and can carry out the survey prior to filling up. Our technician will leave you with a copy of the survey and if any remedial work is required, can arrange for a quotation to be sent to you shortly after.

The tankCHECK survey will:

  • Flag issues and minimise risk. Your tank installation is checked to ensure it meets current fire and pollution regulations and potential risks to your property or surrounding environment are assessed
  • Show early warning signs. The remaining lifespan of your tank is estimated, ensuring you can plan for when it needs to be replaced
  • Avoid build-up of damaging pressure. Lids and vents are checked to ensure no water or debris is getting into the tank and the tank is able to breathe. This avoids a build up of pressure which may cause stress to the tank
  • Ensure the tank gauge is in good working order. Your tank gauge is checked to ensure it is serviceable and reading correctly
  • Eliminate the risk of water damage. Over time, small amounts of water from condensation can build up in the bottom of your tank (water is heavier than oil). Initially harmless, if allowed to build up it can block filters and cause a boiler breakdown. We can apply a special paste to the bottom of your tank to identify any water so it can be dealt with before it becomes a problem.

Just to say a big 'thank you' for the fact that Silvey Oils managed to solve the restricted access delivery issue at St John in Cornwall in a friendly and proactive manner. Thanks to Darren at the depot a smaller vehicle was brought in specially so that oil was delivered over the Xmas/New Year period, hence saving a considerable surcharge that understandably exists with some companies. Your driver was friendly, well presented and considerate as was the original driver who found access limited due to scaffolding being in the way.
