What should I do if I find an oil leak?

  1. Turn off the supply at the isolating valve on the oil tank.
  2. Mop up spills with sand, earth, cloths or any absorbent material.
  3. If the leak is in the oil tank – try to collect as much as possible into cans, buckets etc.
  4. If the leak is severe, try to form a dam with sand or earth until help arrives.
  5. Phone the Fire Brigade if you cannot cope and pollution of a watercourse is possible.
  6. Phone your installer or your oil supply company to get the tank pumped out.
