Steel Tanks Or Plastic Tanks.  Which Is better?

Many people ring us and just automatically ask for plastic oil tanks. Some customers seem quite surprised when we suggest steel oil tanks to them! There are advantages to both types, but your circumstances and requirements may mean that one type is a better fit than the other.

Plastic Tanks

When plastic oil tanks first came onto the market in the UK, many people thought they would last for ever. However, that was never the case as the plastic oil tanks were only designed with a lifespan of 10-15 years.

The reduced life span coupled up with a large batch of faulty polymer early in the 2000’s, alongside several manufacturing problems which caused premature failure of plastic tanks, meant many people choose to go back, or stick with steel tanks. Steel oil tanks can be much more secure than plastic oil tanks as plastic can be damaged very easily.

Steel Tanks

A good quality steel tank, installed correctly will last just as long, if not longer, than most plastic oil tanks on the market, but they do require some maintenance and they do need to be installed correctly.

Steel oil tanks can be made to ANY size or shape and can be single skin, bunded and also our unique triple skinned check your oil tank for water which you simply paint on to the bottom of a stick which is long enough to go to the bottom of your oil tank and if there is any water present in the bottom of your oil tank, the paste will change colour.
