Self Inspection Checklist for Fuel Oil Tanks
Vermont weather takes its toll, causing ground shifts, frost heaves, rust, and general wear, all of which can affect a heating oil tank and its piping. Weather, corrosion, and poor maintenance can cause fuel oil spills, which can lead to unpleasant smells, water contamination, and lower property values. The two main causes of spills come from copper lines leaking under a concrete floor slab and from falling snow and ice damaging fuel filters and outside lines. The Self-Inspection Checklist for Fuel Oil Tanks is designed to help spot any maintenance issues or problems that may lead to tank failure and/or leaks.
