275 gal oil tank basic basement install advice
i plan on removing my old 550 in ground heating oil tank and installing a
basic 275 horizontal tank in the basement. are all tanks,
warranties,fittings lines etc. generic basic items or are there specific
manufactures that make a better product. granby is a name i see
appearing a lot. the plumber i plan to use said any tank that is "UL"
listed is adequate, and that doubled walled tanks or containment tubs
would be overkill.
based on my research so far it seems nobody puts too much thought into
oil tanks. many experienced plumbers i have spoken to say for a basic
275 basement install they just get whatever the local supply house has
in stock providing its UL rated. the local plumbing supply places i have
called just stock "basic" single walled tanks.
i have a nice discrete corner where a basic 275 would fit nicely. the
decision i need to make is whether to get single walled basic or double?
tomorrow i will call granby to get info on their double walled tank.
perhaps i am over-thinking this too much, i hear catastrophic failure would be unusual. i need to make a decision ASAP
before the in ground tank runs too low and ill be forced to get another
i am leaning towards the basic single walled with an alarm perhaps?
