Where should fill and vent pipes be located?

The tank fill and vent pipes should be installed no closer than 2 feet from a window, doorway or ventilation inlet so that oil fumes will not enter your home. As part of a new installation, we will caulk around the opening where the fill and vent pipes penetrate the wall to prevent pest or water entry at this point. Check out the Aboveground Tank Installation page to see our indoor recommendations.
