Roth Heating Oil Tank Installation

Roth Heating Oil Tank Installation

CommTank delivered this oil tank replacement service for a customer in Merrimack, NH. We removed their original basement oil storage tank and replaced it with a new 275-gallon Roth™ double-wall heating oil storage tank. The project took 4 hours and included the installation of a new fuel line to the furnace and new fill and vent pipes. The vent pipe was relocated to meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and New Hampshire codes. The original vent line was too close to the window. CommTank technicians also raised the vent pipe height so it wouldn’t become blocked by snow accumulation in winter.

The following are the steps CommTank’s technician took to replace the oil tank:
