If your oil storage tank is located outside your house and aboveground, its exposure to the elements could lead to damage. While utilizing enclosures are a great way to prevent this damage, it’s not always the case.
Remove Snow: Anytime a snowfall ends, use a broom to brush all sitting snow off of the surface of the tank to prevent water from melting snow from getting into your tank.
Remove Overhanging Icicles: If you spot any icicles that could potentially fall onto your oil storage tank, remove them from wherever they’re hanging. It only takes on icicle hitting your oil tank to damage the unit.
Clear a Maintenance Pathway: In case you need to call for maintenance, be sure to clear a path of snow and ice to ensure easy and safe access to the tank.
Inspect for Damage: Check for signs of cracking, denting or other damage that may have occurred over time. If you know or suspect damage, call Tomasso Bros. Energy for immediate assistance!
