Why Keep Your Oil Tank Clean
Oil tanks often contain a certain level of water that accumulates at the bottom of the tank from condensation. Because oil floats on water, the water remains trapped between the floor of the tank and the oil, promoting the growth of microbes and the creation of a sticky residue. The water can also lead to corrosion, which can eat through the wall of the tank and result in a leak.
An oil tank should be cleaned when evidence of sludge accumulation appears. This evidence can range from delayed burner ignition to a clogged nozzle or oil line. Regular tank cleaning can:
- Improve burner efficiency
- Lower heating costs
- Lower emissions
- Remove harmful contaminants that cause premature tank failure
- Reduce the risk of corrosion
Water and rust at the bottom of a tank can mix with oil and create a sludge that causes clogs
