Residential oil tank failure: What you need to know

Often, you don’t notice that your heating oil tank is starting to fail because the failure begins inside your heating oil tank.

Condensation is the culprit. When there’s empty space inside your heating oil tank, water condensation forms on the walls in the empty space. The water drips off the walls and sinks to the bottom of the tank, where it helps create sediment that leads to corrosion. That corrosion is the cause of most oil tank leaks and failure.

But if you know what to look for, you can spot early signs that your aboveground heating oil tank needs repairs or possibly replacement.

  • blistering in the paint on the underside of the tank
  • pinhole leaks
  • condensation on the outside of the tank that remains even after a heating oil delivery
