Build Up of Water and Sludge in an Oil Tank

Build up of Sludge and Water in an Oil Tank


Moorland Fuels offers an oil tank cleaning and de-sludging service.  Over time sludge and water can build up at the bottom of your oil tank.  Eventually, when water levels build up enough, it will start to flow through the fuel outlet pipe and into your heating system, often resulting in boiler breakdowns.

During an oil tank cleaning, our team of experts will:

  • Empty the contents of your tank into a holding container
  • Thoroughly clean the tank
  • Separate the good fuel from the waste and then dispose of the waste in an environmentally friendly way.
  • Pump the good fuel back into the tank.

While this is a problem that is generally seen in older single skin tanks and occurs over an extended period of time, we recommend that you have your boiler servicing engineer check for potential issues during your annual boiler service.
