Heating oil tanks typically corrode from the inside out and often show no exterior signs of wearing excessively thin. For this reason, we provide a test that is similar to a medical ultrasound that allows us to give you a sense of security in knowing that your tank is safe or advanced warning that your tank may be in need of proactive replacement.
The TankSure® Program enables us to evaluate the safety and integrity of your aboveground heating oil tank using an EPA approved ultrasonic tank test. Using the program’s testing technology, our technicians detect the level of corrosion inside your oil tank and predict the likelihood of your tank needing replacement in the near future. As an additional benefit, if your tank qualifies for the program, you will receive a tank replacement payment (typically between $1,000 and $1,500) for the future replacement of your oil tank.*
1. Putting Safety First
Your heating service provider knows how important it is to keep your home and family safe. Their investment in the TankSure Program helps determine if your heating oil tank needs an immediate or future replacement in order to protect your family and your property.
2. Adding Value
As part of your heating system tune-up each year, your tank is inspected with a technology similar to a medical ultrasound to gauge the thickness of your tank. Tanks commonly corrode from the inside out, offering no visible way of knowing how thin your tank’s walls may be.
3. Protecting Your Equipment
Your technician will record the lowest ultrasonic reading taken along with related information about your heating equipment to understand its condition. This helps to predict how soon you may need to consider replacing your tank.
4. Planning Ahead
The recorded information about your heating equipment is entered into and stored in a state-of-the-art database to help determine when important safety upgrades may be due.
5. Saving You Money
If your heating oil tank qualifies for proactive replacement, you will receive a significant credit (typically between $1,000 and $1,500) toward the replacement performed by your heating service provider or oil company.
