Storage of fuel used for heating system
A leak to a fuel tank will lead to 2 problems:
- Pollution of the ground
- Loss of fuel
To prevent or reduce those events we are proposing you to check your installation. Depending of the region, this control is either mandatory or advisory during start-up and/or at periodical intervals during the life of your installation.
When you are selling your house you need also to get such an inspection report.

During the inspection we will check the tank, the piping, the overfill protection, the cathodic protection if any, the leak detector if any and in the case of an above ground tank the retention wall.
Upon satisfactorily result of the control you will receive a green plate which will be attached to the inlet of the tank to allow the fuel supplier to fill the tank.
