Storage Tanks

snowy-homeYour oil tank serves the most crucial role in ensuring your warmth this winter. Whether it is located in your basement, on the side of your house, or beneath your yard, it usually goes unnoticed until there is a problem. In many cases, you really don’t pay much attention to it. Your oil storage tank is the reason that you and your family enjoy the comfort of warm nights and hot water. But what happens if it needs to be replaced? Rest assured that you’re in good hands with the following options.

 

Our professional staff will install your tank safely and without mess, as well as take care of disposing your old tank. Please call or contact us for a free tank consultation.

Tank Lines

As a homeowner, you should be aware of the integrity of your oil feed lines. In many older homes, oil feed lines are either under the floor or encased in concrete. In many cases, these feed lines are made from copper which over time has the tendency to corrode or split due to changing conditions within your home.

Feed lines that are not visible are difficult to inspect and therefore difficult to diagnose if there is a problem. With a shifting of your home’s foundation or basement slab, a feed line can and will rupture causing a release of oil under your home that may go undetected for years.

Oil heat customers now have the convenience of containing their oil in new oil feed lines encased in plastic protective sleeves. This new material, called Oil Pro-Tec™, is resistant to almost all chemicals found in the soil. It is also flame retardant, abrasion resistant, and resistant to Earth movement. Oil Pro-Tec™ coated copper tubing was uniquely designed to protect both the environment from oil contaminants and the copper tubing from corrosion. Oil Pro-Tec™ features an innovative concept in fuel oil tubing. Special grooves between the coating and the copper assist with leak detection should a line failure occur.

Contact us today to do a feed line inspection.

Underground Tank Replacement

F. F. Hitchcock would recommend replacing an underground tank with an above-ground tank to reduce your liability as a homeowner. In many cases, there is no way to tell if something is wrong with your underground tank until it is an emergency situation.  We can replace the tank proactively to reduce the risk to you and your property.

An indoor above-ground storage tank has many benefits. An indoor tank can be installed in any free space in your basement or crawlspace. F. F. Hitchcock can provide a total package of extraction and storage of oil in your underground tank, excavation of your existing underground storage tank, and installation of a new above-ground storage tank into which we can then transfer your existing oil.
