Heating Oil Storage Tank Setting and Monitoring

Woodruff Energy: The oil tank experts

Outdoor and aboveground fuel storage tanks are an excellent way to safely store your home’s heating oil. While it's smart to utilize enclosures to protect your tank, storage tanks are still susceptible to damage from their exposure to the elements, which can lead to corrosion and contamination.

Woodruff Energy has been helping install and inspect heating oil storage tanks for the businesses and homeowners of Southern New Jersey since 1931. We know the ins and outs of every storage tank we install, but it’s also important to inspect your own heating oil storage tank in between visits from Woodruff Energy.


Routine inspections will help identify problems early and extend the lifespan of your fuel storage tank. Woodruff Energy put together this list of things you should look for when performing tank inspections.

  • Rust and Dents - Corrosion or dent marks along the exterior of the tank are indicators of problems coming from inside the tank.

  • Wet Spots - If you notice any wet spots underneath the tank or on its surface, this is an indicator of trouble; call (856) 352-5287 to get it looked at by Woodruff Energy.

  • Unprotected Lines - Just like the fuel storage tank itself, the tubing that connects the tank to your home can deteriorate. If you notice any cracks or splits in the rubber tubing, call us right away.

  • Unstable Legs - Some problems that occur with a storage fuel tank are the result of faulty installation. If the legs are uneven and the tank is not level, it will have trouble functioning at its full potential. This is an issue for Woodruff Energy to fix. Just call us at (856) 352-5287.

Our experts recommend replacing your tank if it's more than 20 years old, whether there is visible corrosion or not. For any questions, concerns or to replace your storage tank, contact Woodruff Energy.
