Why Remove Your Sussex County Underground Oil Tank?
While many businesses and homes have converted to newer heating methods, numerous properties still have old fuel oil tanks on them, both damaged and abandoned. Even when inactive, these tanks can be hazardous due to potential leaks and spills. For this and these other reasons, you should consider removal of your property’s oil tank.
- Pending home sale – The law may not require that you remove your underground oil tank prior to selling your Sussex County home. But you’ll find it extremely difficult to make a sale without doing so. Insurance companies are not likely to provide liability coverage and this causes potential buyers to take a pass.
- Your tank was installed before the late 1990’s – Due to the life expectancy of these older tanks, if yours is more than 15 or 20 years old, the likelihood of leakage is far higher. Built-in venting leads to moisture collection that results in rust and erosion over time. The resulting leaks causes soil and groundwater contamination.
- Prepare for an above-ground storage tank installation – Leakage require tank replacement. Most owners choose to have their new tank placed aboveground outdoors or in their basement or garage. You can choose from new modern options that are built to endure, such as rust-proof plastic tanks and double-walled tanks for leak-prevention.
- Conversion to natural gas – Few homeowners are still using these old heating sources, but if you are, a move to natural gas is a smart, safe, and energy efficient move.
