Merrimack, New Hampshire – CommTank performed oil tank replacement services for this residential customer in New Hampshire.  Our dedicated technicians successfully installed a Roth 275-gallon oil tank after removing and safely disposing of the homeowner’s original basement oil storage tank. 

CommTank is one of the top oil tank replacement companies for whom Roth certifies technicians to install their oil tanks. This project took our Roth oil tank certified installers four (4) hours to complete.

The scope of this project included oil tank pipe installation of a new fuel line to the furnace, as well as new fill and vent pipes.  Our team also relocated the unit’s vent pipe to meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and New Hampshire fire and environmental codes, since the location of the original vent line was too close to a window.

CommTank technicians also raised the height of the vent pipe so it could not become blocked with snow accumulation in winter.  Oil tank vent blockage with snow or other elements can reduce ventilation and reduce the efficiency and performance of the oil tank and burner.
