Domestic Oil Tanks

CHF SUPPLIES utilises its own specialist trained installation team to carry out domestic tank replacements, tank removals and new installations. Our domestic teams operate from Preston and are OFTEC and Tankmark accredited. Every Tankmark installer is registered with The Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC). OFTEC Registered Technicians have been trained to the highest standards and their work is regularly inspected to ensure compliance with the most demanding requirements.

For cost efficiency reasons we cover an area roughly within a seventy mile radius of our office. We have many years experience in the domestic tank market and carry all the relevant up to date insurances to give you peace of mind. We are holders of a current Waste Transfer Certificate which allows us to transport waste tanks and associated materials on the public highway legally.

Regular inspections of your oil tank could save you money and prevent any environmental spills and damages. Although maintaining your oil tank might not be your top priority, an oil tank in good order will be more efficient to run and will reduce the risk of adverse events, such as fuels leaks.

We are happy to carry out a 'no cost' site survey to discuss the options available, make our recommendations and then follow up with a written quote. A basic outline of the service includes; pumping out and holding any remaining fuel from the existing tank (providing it hasn't become contaminated by water ingress); disconnection of the existing tank and removal from site for safe disposal; supply and installation of the new tank onto existing piers or modified piers in the case of plastic tanks; supply of all new tank fittings; reconnection to the original boiler pipework; transfer oil back into the new tank ready for boiler to be started.

We supply both steel and plastic tanks, single skinned and bunded depending on the application. We can also construct new tank pads and tank stands if you are thinking of relocating your tank. Call CHF SUPPLIES to discuss your requirements on 01995 670888.

OFTEC have recently launched their electronic version of the OFTEC pocket guide. The concise guide provides a quick reference tool for technicians, specifiers and building control officers. The pocket guide is designed to complement the existing suite of OFTEC technical books and contains the most popular topics that crop up on the OFTEC technical helpline.
