Preventing fuel oil leak
Have your tank checked every year
To avoid a fuel oil leak or spill, we recommend that you have your heating oil tank inspected by a licensed specialist every year. To avoid major problems, ask your fuel provider about their inspection programs.
Check your tank for:
- pinched lines
- connectors in poor condition
- damaged oil level indicator
- cracked welds
- damaged support base
- rust, seepage, damp areas or odours
If your tank shows any of these warning signs, replace it as soon as possible.
