Oil leaks are unusual but most occur in older steel tanks. It is very difficult to know when an oil tank needs to be replaced because tanks corrode from the inside out. Tower Energy and Plainville Oil offer a program for our customers in the Hartford County area for aboveground and basement tanks.
The TankSure® Program
Tower Energy and Plainville Oil are exclusive providers of the TankSure Program’s unique testing for aboveground oil tanks. TankSure provides the following:
An annual ultrasonic test (approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) that checks the thickness of your tank’s walls
A $1,000 replacement warranty. If we detect a problem, we immediately notify you with a recommendation to replace your tank – before you have an expensive problem on your hands.
A tank inspection certificate (available upon request) that documents your annual test and inspection. This may entitle you to a discount on your homeowner’s insurance and, if at some time you decide to sell your home, the certificate can make a sale easier.
For non-qualified tanks, a $200 credit toward a new oil tank installation (may be combined with loyalty credits).
