Please respond if you are or know of a licensed plumber or oil technician in Red Hook NY area who can assist with tightness testing of an oil pipe to determine exact cause and origin of a leak.

    not in that area

    but where was the leak? Was it an oil line or tank fill piping leak? It could also be bad pipe or elbow, and not where the thread connection is. Have seen it before

    leak location

    from unplugged end of abandoned bottom supply pipe (having ball valve).  Valve found in closed position, but oil got past it.
