When replacing an oil tank, you should consider replacing it with a tank that has a double wall to prevent oil spills. A vent alarm is installed between the vent pipe and oil tank with a whistle that hangs into the tank. Home heating oil tank removal is a delicate procedure, especially when the tank is underground. Even if you think the tank is young, and not leaking, buried oil tanks should be tested for water in the tank bottom. An AST (above ground storage tank) will have condensation from the oil inside the tank that will cause the storage tank to rust. The perfect situation would be you are purchasing a property that has an underground oil tank. Once the existing tank is removed, the ground is leveled and a soft bed of soil is set to replace the old tank with the new tank.
