Today’s fuel tanks mean peace of mind!
Modern oil and propane fuel tanks are true marvels of technology. Many new tanks are designed with double protection against leaks. Aboveground models have a leak-proof inner lining of plastic or fiberglass and an outer wall of corrosion-resistant steel. Plus, they’re affordable and often come with warranties that are decades long. You can even have them custom made to fit in corners or small spaces in your yard, basement or garage.
Today’s underground tanks are also double-walled and many are made of plastic or fiberglass so they can’t corrode. Now considered leak-proof, they too provide worry-free fuel storage and convenience.
Protection for existing fuel tanks
For homeowners with older steel tanks, we offer our ProGuard® protection program. With ProGuard you get serious spill protection and peace of mind.
Tank tips for above-ground oil tanks:
- Keep the area around the tank clear of clutter, especially around piping and joints.
- Never use the top of the tank as a storage shelf.
- Inspect the legs and underside of the tank for early signs of corrosion.
- Never bang on a tank.
Propane tank tips:
- If you are clearing snow and ice and notice any leaks or damage to tanks and lines, immediately close the tank valve and call us.
- Keep all outside gas lines and regulators free from accumulating ice and snow. Any snow or ice should be at least 12 to 18 inches below the top of propane tanks.
- If you have accumulated snow and ice that needs to be removed, be sure your tank shutoff valve is accessible before proceeding with removal. If it isn’t, clear the area around the valve first. Damage is often caused during ice removal around these components, so use extreme caution.
- If you smell propane inside your house, leave your home immediately. If you can shut your tank off, do so immediately and then proceed to a neighbor’s house and call the fire department and Wilson.
