APCON makes the oil tank removal process easy for homes and businesses across Montgomery County, Bucks County and Philadelphia County. Whether you need to replace your storage tank, remove the storage tank or perform upgrades on your current system, our certified technicians can help.
Our Tank Handler/Inspector is licensed by the PADEP and NJDEP and is qualified to remove or install any size storage tank located above or below ground. Continuing education and administrative training allow our handler to maintain the high skill level necessary to offer a thorough job in compliance with industry standards.
Reasons for Storage Tank Removal
- Rust & Corrosion – The number one reason for oil tank removal or replacement is the wear and tear that accumulates over time. Since storage tanks sit idle for years, rust can build up as the oil tank ages. Before the damage becomes a hazard, contact us to have your oil tank removed or replaced.
- Environmental Concerns – With underground storage tanks (UST), oil leaks can become very hazardous. These leaks cause soil and groundwater contamination, which is dangerous for plants and people alike.
- Buying/Selling a Home – When buying a new home, you have the right to know the condition of your aboveground and underground oil storage tanks. If a tank needs cleaning, repairs or complete replacement, that will change the value of the property.
- Aesthetics – This goes hand in hand with the previous point. If you move somewhere that has a visible oil tank (outdoor aboveground or in the basement), you might want to have that replaced with a UST below the soil. First impressions go a long way, and some people think their property looks better without a visible tank in the picture.
How it works:
First, we remove all residue and sludge from the tank. After that, we transport the tank to a licensed salvage facility and recycle the tank in accordance with industry standards. Once the tank is removed responsibly, the excavation is then filled to grade and the disturbed areas restored. APCON has safely removed thousands of tanks, and we always follow DEP regulations when disposing of the tank’s contents.
As professional oil tank removers, we service, repair or replace above ground oil tanks for residents living throughout Montgomery County, Bucks County and Philadelphia County. Whether your oil tank is located in the basement, garage or along the outside perimeter of your home or business, it doesn’t matter to us! APCON regularly handles removal jobs of all sizes.
Tank life is extended significantly if your tank is located within the home. However, if your oil tank is located outside, you can depend on us to replace it. As a homeowner, it is important for you to be proactive in maintaining your system to avoid rust, corrosion and other hazardous conditions.
