Tank Replacement

Oil tank removal and replacement in Danbury, New Milford, Southbury, Newtown, Ridgefield, Kent and surrounding areas in CT

While your heating oil tank might look perfectly fine on the outside, it may be eroding on the inside. Corrosion can and does happen, causing the walls of the tank to wear dangerously thin and putting your property at risk.

Every single tank removal and replacement has been accomplished by our very own, highly-trained heating oil tank technicians, each of whom is hand-picked by us to uphold our core values of safety, efficiency, and reliability.

We take care of every aspect of tank removal and replacement, from removing the old tank to installing a new one and afterwards, restoring the landscaping to its original condition and handling all of the necessary permit processes.

The oil tank removal process can usually be completed in one day. Soil tests are conducted at the time of removal and results are typically returned within a week.

Our process works like this:

  1. Ensure customer safety using the “call before you dig” process
  2. Remove oil in old tank, either by transferring to a new tank or through safe disposal
  3. Clear all heating oil return lines and remove inside lines at the foundation
  4. Uncover the old underground heating oil tank
  5. Cut open the top of the tank and carefully remove all contents
  6. Remove tank from the ground
  7. Take soil sample
  8. Send soil sample to a state-certified lab for evaluation
  9. Backfill the excavated hole
  10. Restore all surrounding landscaping to its original condition
  11. Remove and/or dispose of old tank and provide certification copies both to homeowner and to local government agencies

What If my heating oil tank is leaking?

If your heating oil tank is leaking, we will work closely with the appropriate environmental agencies to ensure a thorough cleanup that meets all legal and safety regulations.

If your heating oil tank is not leaking, we do not necessarily recommend removal. However, many real estate agents will recommend underground tank removal prior to putting your home on the market. If left in place, an old underground heating oil tank could present some barriers when selling your home.
