Protecting Your Heating Oil Tank

Heating oil tank

Posted: February 2, 2018

Heating oil tanks have come a long way in recent years – many of today’s surprisingly high tech models feature plastic “tank-in-tank” designs that are virtually leak proof.

The problem is not everyone has these tanks, and if you don’t, you run the risk of a leak at just about any time – especially if your tank is older.

The worst part about a leak – apart from the potentially exorbitant cost of remediating it – is that your tank may not give you much warning before it fails, since tanks typically begin to deteriorate from the inside out due to trapped moisture and sediment.

But there is a worry-free way to deal with the risk of a heating oil tank leak in your Seacoast home: sign up for TankSure protection from P. Gagnon & Son.

TankSure: Tank protection and peace of mind

If you already know your tank needs to be replaced (if it’s showing signs of rust or is slowly leaking, for example), do it now – it’s simply not worth the risk of a full-blown tank failure.

If you’re not sure if it’s time to replace your tank, we highly recommend signing up for TankSure protection, which includes an annual ultrasound inspection – the best way to spot compromises in your tank’s sidewalls before an actual leak starts. Other great TankSure benefits include zinc anode protection against corrosion and a $1,000 tank replacement warranty.

If you’re already scheduled for a heating system tune-up, we can also check your heating oil tank to see if it qualifies for TankSure. If you haven’t scheduled your annual service yet, don’t wait – with nearly two months of winter still ahead, there’s still plenty of cold days and nights to come!
