CommTank’s approach to oil tank installations

  • We’ll visit your home or business to measure the space where the new oil tank will be installed.
  • We’ll check the distance from the proposed location to both the burner and to the fill and vent pipe.
  • For aboveground tanks, we’ll make sure the floor under the proposed oil tank location is safe.
  • We’ll deliver your new tank, steel vent and fill pipe, and copper lines within protective, continuous, non-metallic sleeves.
  • We’ll install the tank, pitching it forward slightly to prevent buildup of sludge in your tank – limiting the number of service calls you’ll need.
  • We’ll install six-inch steel legs with flanges at the foot of the tank for optimum stability.
  • We’ll add a shutoff valve before the oil filter, so your filter or burner can be isolated while the technician works on it during service calls.
  • To complete the job, we’ll paint the exposed pipes so they are protected from the elements.

We stand behind our work and our products

Advances in technology have resulted in the manufacture of tanks made from corrosion-resistant materials, such as fiberglass. Properly installed and maintained, today’s average oil tank can last as long as 50 years.

When you choose CommTank for oil tank installations, you know you’re going to get the best service, the best products and the best warranties. Because we never want you to worry about your oil tank. It’s that simple. CommTank offers a labor warranty that’s unique in the industry – a one-year warranty that starts on the day of installation. And we give you access to some of the best tank manufacturers in the business: Roth and Granby.

Example of a Roth Tank installed in a basement.

  • Roth tanks have a blow-molded seamless inner tank of high-density polyethylene, which is absolutely leak-proof and corrosion-resistant. The outer tank is made of galvanized steel, lock seamed and sealed with an oil and fire-resistant seal. The outer tank protects the inner tank, and offers secondary containment should the inner tank fail. Roth tanks feature a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty on parts and equipment.
  • Granby tanks are time-tested and offer ultra-high performance, featuring proven steel construction with cutting-edge polyurethane-based coating to protect against corrosion and leaks. Granby tanks offer a manufacturer’s warranty on parts and equipment from the date of installation that varies from 10 to 25 years, depending on the model.

Thinking about buying your own tank at a home supply store? Store-bought tanks often don’t last as long (under 10 years) and some tanks are not up to code, so be sure to do your research. We’ll be glad to help determine the best tank for your needs. For examples of our work please see the oil tank installation projects section of our web site.
