Tank Removal in NJ Permits and Autorization

Posted on: March 9th, 2013 by Frank McGuire

Tank Removal in NJ            If you live in New Jersey and you want to have an oil tank removed there are several things that you should keep in mind.  Of course, you will have to find out where the tank is located. This is common sense but some people never think about the fact that you have to first know where it is.

Once you know where the tank is at you will need to determine if you can use a backhoe to remove the oil tank.  If you cannot use this type of equipment you will need to consider other options.  You might find that you need to hand dig it for tank removal and this can be very time consuming.

In order to carry out your tank removal you will need to also pay for a permit.  Depending on where you live you could be expected to pay anywhere between $50 to $200 to get the correct New Jersey permits.  It is also important to know that there are times when you will need to also contact different utility companies because you may need to have other lines moved or secured to go through with your tank removal.

Some people worry about the impact that the removal is going to have on their land.  What you should keep in mind is that this will not damage your property at all if you have carried it out correctly.  Are you concerned about the length of time that this process will take?  That is not something that you should be too worried about either because in most cases you will see that you can have the entire process completed in as little as three hours.

When you think about tank removal you may be concerned about your utilities.  This is especially true if you use the oil for your heat and the hot water.  However, you should continue to have properly working utilities while the process is taking place.  These should not be any disruptions that you need to be worried about.

If you have oil left in the tank and you are getting a new one you should know that there will be attempts to make sure that all of the oil in the first tank will be placed into the new tank.  This will save you money in the end.

As you can see, this type of removal in New Jersey is not that complicated.  You just need to make sure that you are paying attention and doing your research about the process before anything gets started.  Doing so will help to decrease any complications.  You will also be able to select the best professional to be able to help you with the process.  When you know the process you can monitor the professional to ensure that they are doing what they should be doing.  The last thing that you need are problems that will only delay the entire process.  If it can be completed in three or four hours then you want that to be the time limit.

Oil Tank Removal Clean upWhen it comes to tank removal in New Jersey you will most likely want to hire someone to do this for you.  It is much easier than trying to do it on your own and creating a lot of problems because you do not know what you are doing.  But, you always want to know what to expect.  It will make you more comfortable with the process and ease any stress that you may be experiencing in relation to the tank removal you are requesting.

Most of the contractors that you work with will be obtaining any and all permits for you so that you do not have to worry about doing this on your own. They will simply add this to the final price that you own them in the end.

Before the tank will be removed you are going to see that if there is any oil in the old tank it is going to be removed before the tank is removed.  When that process has been completed the lines will be purged and then disconnected.  All pipes are going to be cut and removed as well.

In many situations you will find that the tank can very easily be removed in one piece.  That makes the process a lot faster and less oil tank removal ceaning upmessy when it comes to clean up.  Now, if the tank removal does require the tank to be cut into pieces this will take place next.  Then any mess will be cleaned up.

If there are any holes that need to be filled and taken care of once the tank removal has been completed then the company will take care of that as well.  It would always be a good idea to speak with the contractor that you are hiring to ensure that they will be taking care of all of these issues and that it is estimated in the contract that they draw up for you.

If the tank removal is taking place outdoors you should know that the placement of the tank will determine just how long it will take and how much your home may be disrupted.  For example, if the tank is located under a deck and it needs to be removed the company is going to need to remove your deck to get to it. While you might not want to think about this, and it can be very disappointing, there will not be an easier way to accomplish this task.

You may also end up paying more for the removal if you need to call in other utility companies.  This may include the water department or the cable company.  They may need to move certain things in order to get to the tank.  Often times they are not going to do this for free so you will need to pay for these services as well.

It may sound like a lot and it could cause a lot of stress.  But, in the end, if you are working with a good contractor they will know all of this and they will be taking care of it for you.

ROTH Tank Certified Installers in NJ

ROTH Tank Certified Installers in NJ

 New Jersey Oil Tank RemovalWhat sets ROTH Tanks apart from the competition is their double walled oil tank design that is guaranteed to prevent oil leaks that contaminate your soil and groundwater.  But that isn’t the only thing to consider when deciding to install or remove your oil tank.  You can find ROTH Tank certified installers in New Jersey who will guarantee compliance with federal, state and local regulations and will ensure that your oil tank installation or oil tank removal is done right.

There are other oil tank companies in New Jersey that can do oil tank installations and removals, but none come more highly recommended than ROTH Tank certified installers.  ROTH Tanks lead the industry because of their patented designed tanks that provide the most protection against leaks.  That is because the inside tank is made of the same corrosion resistant plastic as your car’s gas can.  That tank is wrapped inside of a tank made of galvanized steel.

ROTH Tanks can be installed above ground outside or can be installed indoors, typically in your basement.  ROTH oil tanks are only installed by authorized, certified ROTH tank installers.  Each installer is OSHA certified for the highest standard of compliance for home oil tank installations and oil tank removals.

Many homeowners are switching their old oil tanks for cleaner alternatives like natural gas or electric.  But if you are going to stick with oil, ROTH gives its customers a thirty year limited warranty against defects and manufacturer error.  That’s added security over the life of your oil tank.  Their tanks are resistant to corrosion which helps to prevent any oil leaks.  Each tank comes with a leak alert that warns you if your inner or outer tank is leaking.   Even with all of the environmental protections that have gone into the design of the ROTH Oil Tank, if your tank does leak, the outer wall of the tank can hold more than 110% of the oil that is contained inside of the inner tank.

Experience is a teacher, and ROTH has been manufacturing oil tanks in the U.S. for over forty years.  Their warranty goes above and beyond the industry standard by twenty years.  If there is a leak in the thirty years that your ROTH Tank is installed, you are insured for up to $2 million for costs associated with cleaning and repairing the leak.

There are numerous companies in the State of New Jersey that are certified to install your ROTH Tank.  Finding the right company for your oil tank installation or removal is important.  Granby is another oil tank company that many oil tank installers will offer to its clients.  But those tanks lack the double wall design that puts ROTH Tanks ahead of its competition.  Make sure that your installers are certified.  Ask questions about their knowledge of federal, state and local regulations for the size and number of tanks you are installing and if your town allows for above ground tanks.
