Spill Containment Equipment FAQs

  • Is a leaking oil tank dangerous?

    Correctly installed, maintained, and used oil tanks can last for up to 20 years without incident depending on composition and circumstances. However, when leaks do occur, the oil released into the environment can be highly damaging to the environment, and population, especially if it is allowed to contaminate controlled water sources. Leaks, especially when left unattended can pollute soil, groundwater, water sources, and wildlife.

    While oil itself has a relatively low toxicity to humans, prolonged exposure can be harmful, causing nausea, throat irritation, and, over the long term, serious health problems like liver damage.

    For this reason, it is extremely important to follow local oil and fuel storage guidelines when selecting and installing a containment tank. Using a bunded or double-walled tank can assist greatly in reducing the impact of any initial leak or spill. If a spill has already occurred, assess the situation, and consult a professional in oil tank spillage. For minor leaks or spills,  a spill containment kit or tray may be the best solution.

  • What causes an oil tank to leak?

    Oil and fuel tanks can leak for a variety of reasons; though the primary root causes are either incorrect installation or a lack of maintenance. Other common, more specific reasons for storage tank leaks include:

    • Extreme temperature changes leading to brittleness and cracking in plastic tanks
    • Damage to tank equipment, including sight gauges
    • Feedline wear and tear
    • Corrosion (seen in steel tanks)

    It is important to manage any oil or fuel escaping the storage tank as soon and effectively as possible. Contact a registered specialist in oil and fuel management to assess the situation, and proceed according to their advice. Smaller spills or leaks may often be contained using a spill kit or tray, available for purchase through RPM Fuels.

  • Does homeowners insurance cover oil tank leaks?

    Whether or not your homeowners insurance covers an oil or fuel tank leak is entirely dependent on the exact specifications and stipulations of your package.  If you have evidence that or suspect your storage tank is leaking, it’s important to contact your insurance company as soon as possible to establish where you stand and prevent further damage or oil loss.

    If your insurance does not provide cover for oil tank leaks or spills, the UK Spill Contractors Accreditation Scheme, or OFTEC may prove helpful in finding a trusted, local contractor to assist in the initial cleanup, and further advise on the situation.

     

  • Can you fix a leaking oil tank?

    In the vast majority of cases, once an oil or fuel tank is damaged to the point of leaking, it cannot be fixed. Temporary measures such as sealing cracks with strengthened tapes may help resolve the issue on a temporary basis, but a leaking tank will most likely need to be replaced entirely in the long run to prevent environmental damage and fuel loss.

    For this reason, it is important to inspect your oil storage tank on a regular basis, noting and reporting any significant signs of damage or leakage to an OFTEC registered technician, who will be able to review the issue from a professional standpoint and offer further advice and assistance. Smaller spills or leaks may often be contained using a spill kit or tray, available for purchase through RPM Fuels.

     

  • How do you know if your oil tank is leaking?

    Oil and fuel tanks can leak for a variety of reasons; though the primary root causes are either incorrect installation or a lack of maintenance. Over time, older tanks in particular may show signs of wear more than previously, and might, eventually, crack or leak. Signs your oil tank is at risk of leaking include;

    • Noticeable damage to the surface of the tank, including dents, deep scratching, or cracks
    • Damp, wet, or stained patches around or under the tank.
    • Splitting (in plastic tanks)
    • Interior or exterior corrosion or rusting (in steel tanks)
    • A stronger oil smell than usual
    • Damaged or dead grass around the tank
    • Visual evidence of oil around the tank

    Whilst smaller spills or leaks may often be contained using a spill kit or tray, larger leaks may require serious remedial work. An OFTEC registered technician should always be contacted to assess and advise in the event of a suspected or confirmed leak.

  • How much does it cost to replace an oil tank in the UK?

    The cost of replacing an oil tank varies greatly depending on the size, type, material, and function of replacement tank required. Further pricing factors to take into consideration include the removal and disposal of the existing oil tank and installation of the replacement tank. Whilst installing a new oil tank can be expensive, it’s important to keep in mind that the majority of manufacturers offer a 10-year warranty on all bunded tanks (steel and plastic), meaning they should serve you for an extended period of time.

    Oil tanks offered by PRM Fuels range in price from anywhere between £395 for an 1100 litre single skin oil tank to approximately £10,000.

     

  • What is a spill kit?

    Spill kits, when designed specifically for oil and fuel, help minimise the impact of an oil leak or spill in the early stages, or, in the case of a relatively minor event. These kits may also assist in the cleanup of grease. Spill kits typically contain;

    • A labelled bin, to be kept within reach at all times. Contaminated material may be placed in this.
    • Absorbent ‘socks’, or flexible tubes designed to be placed around the edge of the spill area, and contain it.
    • Absorbent cushions designed to catch liquid runoff.
    • Absorbent pads designed to soak up the majority of the liquid. Oil spill kit specific pads are often designed to be water repellent, meaning they may be used in cleaning oil spills in bodies of water.
    • Labelled disposal bags.
    • PPE, including gloves and eye protection.
  • What is a spill tray?

    Spill trays, also known as drip trays, are a containment method designed to capture leaking oil as it falls or leaks from its container or storage tank. Whilst smaller spill trays are perfectly suited to ‘jerry cans’, larger spill trays may be placed under storage containers or barrels in order to aid containment. Oil or fuel collected in these trays can be stored in this way on a temporary basis, and are excellent for containing smaller leaks, but generally cannot be used to contain large spills or leaks (more than 200 litres).

    In order to ensure spill trays will have sufficient capacity to contain a leak, they must be emptied on a regular basis.

     

  • What is the cleanup cost for an oil spill?

    The cleanup cost for an oil leak or spill is highly dependent on individual circumstances, including the scale of the spill, and the damage caused by the fuel or oil. Additional costs include the removal and disposal of the tank at fault. Whilst a smaller cleanup may be completed for just a few hundred pounds, larger leaks can contaminate soil, groundwater, and controlled water – in significant cases, remediation can cost thousands of pounds.

    For this reason, it is highly important to inspect your oil or fuel storage tank on a regular basis, noting and reporting any significant signs of damage or leakage to an OFTEC registered technician, who will be able to review the issue from a professional standpoint and offer further advice and assistance.

  • What should I do if my oil tank leaks?

    It is important to manage any oil or fuel escaping the storage tank as soon and effectively as possible. Contact a registered specialist in oil and fuel management to assess the situation, and proceed according to their advice. Smaller spills or leaks may often be contained using a spill kit or tray, available for purchase through RPM Fuels.

    In the event of a more significant spill, all remedial work should be undertaken by a qualified specialist – this may be covered by your insurance. If the spill has contaminated the surrounding soil, this may need to be removed or overturned. Any oil present in the surrounding water must be removed.
