Our drivers are trained to put safety first — and heating oil storage systems are designed to protect against problems such as overfilling and spills.
But there are certain safety codes that must be followed so we can ensure safe deliveries to your home. One of the most important codes involves your fill and vent pipes. Older piping made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) must be replaced because this plastic piping becomes brittle during winter conditions, making it more likely to crack when a tank is being filled.
This is such an important issue that many insurance companies are now enforcing a no-fill mandate for tanks with PVC piping.
If this is an issue for you, we can easily resolve it by upgrading your plastic piping to more durable iron or copper piping. If you have any questions or concerns about your oil storage system, please feel free to call or email us.
