Does my oil tank need to be bunded?
Similarly, it is asked, do you have to have a bunded oil tank?
A bunded fuel tank is used by most commercial and industrial premises (i.e. the ones that require an oil tank with a storage capacity of more than 200 litres). They are also a legal requirement at most domestic installations, where siting of the tank requires it according to OFTEC's requirements.
Similarly, how often does an oil tank need to be filled? Usually they will come and refill once a month or 6 weeks. They will fill upto 7/8th of your tank from where you are at that point.
Also, do you need building regulations for an oil tank?
Oil tanks may be installed inside a building, but will require secondary containment; this may be a legal requirement. The tank should be contained within a fire resistant chamber located at the lowest possible level in the building.
How long do bunded oil tanks last?
Most plastic bunded oil tanks come with a 10 year manufacturers' warranty and when properly installed and maintained can last for many years beyond its expiration date.
