Leaking Cracked Tank

Recent Tank Replacement in Lucan, Co. Dublin


Cracked, Leaking Tank 

Our Client had an emergency leak to a tank that was close to thirty years old in the recent heatwave, the bulge on the right of the photograph was the crack that was close to 16 inches in length. We were able to advise the client how to stop the leak and the necessary steps to take until we were able to attend.

Emergency Response

We attended the clients premises the following day and were quickly able to assess that the cracked tank needed to be replaced.

The first step in the replacement process was emptying the clients tank.The Tank contained nearly 1100 litres of kerosene and needed to be temporarily stored as the new tank was going to be installed in the same position as the old tank.

New Base

New Structure

 The old base wasn’t suitable to hold the weight of the new tank plus the volume of fuel it would contain safely.

We installed 4 new lintels and leveled the base walls so as to provide a base structually level and strong enough to hold the full replacement tank

New Tank


The temporary tank was drained and the oil was refilled into the newly installed and structurally improved new tank to complete the process.

The new tanks valves and lines were thoroughly checked to make sure there were no issues. The final step was to check the heating system to reassure the customer that the oil line was bled and moving freely.
