Remove Water in Oil Tank

Northern Ireland Environmental Agency Approved Oil Tank Services

Water in your oil tank can cause damage to your heating system and result in your boiler not working properly. This problem can occur due to condensation or a crack in the tank, allowing water to enter. If you find that your boiler has suddenly stopped working, even if there is enough heating oil, it is likely that water has reached the boiler and caused the issue.

At Removerr, we offer various oil tank services, including the removal of water from your tank. If you are experiencing issues with your boiler or suspect that there may be water in your oil tank, please contact andrew@removerr.co.uk or call 07434 691 809.

Damage to the oil pump can occur once the water reaches the boiler. The full extent of the damage can only be assessed on-site. If necessary, a new oil pump may be needed in order to fully restore your heating system.

If the reason for the water entering the tank is due to a crack or damage in the oil tank, then it is necessary to replace the tank. We provide both oil tank replacement and oil tank removal across Northern Ireland.

Water can build up in your heating oil tank through condensation. The difference in temperatures causes moisture to develop on the inner walls of the tank. Rainwater can enter your tank through:

  • A filler cap that is not fully closed or has been removed
  • Faulty seal that allows water to seep in
  • Cracks or splits in the tank, which can allow water to enter

Older single skin oil tanks are more at risk of water entering through the filler cap due to their poor design. Newer bunded oil tanks have screw caps and a protective lid that eliminates the possibility of the cap being blown off by the wind.
