Oil Tank Upgrade to Granby Standard Model
This heating oil tank had a small leak from the tank bottom and this customer was collecting oil in a plastic bucket. CommTank technicians transferred the oil to a temporary storage tank and then cut and cleaned the tank. Old basement tanks are cut in half and brought back to our facility to be crushed and disposed of at a licensed scrap yard.
CommTank installed a standard Granby residential tank to replace the original leaking tank. Our technicians replaced the oil lines with new polyethylene coated copper lines and ran the lines overhead to the furnace. New vent and fill pipes were installed and painted to protect them from rust. The tank and piping were installed in accordance with NFPA 31. All heating oil tank installations in New Hampshire must meet NFPA 31 and SFC requirements to be eligible for State cleanup funds. No permits were required by the town of Derry for this new oil tank installation.
