Nothing lasts forever – not even your heating oil tank.

The question is, how long will it last? As it turns out, that’s a question whose answer depends on a lot of variables – take a look at the table below to see what we mean (estimates below are courtesy inspectopedia.com).

A better question might be how will I know when it is time to upgrade my heating oil tank? Well, one thing you definitely DON’T want to do is rely on your eyes to make that decision. Why? Because a heating oil tank usually corrodes from the inside out due to trapped moisture and sediment. That means you often won’t see signs of a problem – until it’s wet and slick on your basement floor (or worse).

Rather than simply look at your tank, it’s worthwhile to have an expert do a professional heating oil tank inspection. An expert will spot problems that you will probably miss, helping you to potentially save thousands of cleanup dollars in the process.

The best part about a tank inspection is that you can get one FREE from Walton – all you have to do to get the process started is fill out our online form and will contact you to talk about heating oil tank replacement options.
