Worry-Free Oil Tank Removal

Home above ground tank

Removing an above ground tank at your home.

Above ground tanks located in the home can be challenging.


Removing the tank should involve the following procedures:

  • Consider cleaning the tank before the removal.  This will remove all sludge located at the bottom of the tank and make removal easier.
  • Completely empty the tank.  Make sure all the pipes are capped and emptied.
  • Contact your town to see if any permits are required to remove your above ground tank.
  • Remove the tank & pipes.  Do not remove these pipes if they are apart of the structure of the building.
  • Heating oil tanks in the basement must have a solid disk inserted into the joint of the pipe.  This will prevent heating oil from being mistakenly pumped into the basement after the tank is removed.
  • Many times the emptied tank will have to be cut and removed in pieces because it is difficult to remove the entire vessel in one piece.
  • The tank must be disposed of properly.  A good idea is to take the tank to a salvage yard for recycling.
