Concrete Oil Tank Bases

Highly experienced, professional and reliable heating engineers

New concrete Oil Tank Bases

Oil tank bases can be constructed fom 50mm concrete slabs or they can be made of poured concrete. Poured concrete is by far the best and longest lasting option, slab bases tend to move over time causing the oil tank to warp and ultimately crack.

Most old steel tanks are installed on brick or block piers to provide a gravity feed and also to keep them away from the damp ground in an attempt to prevent rusting.

We can build new bases from start to finish, our usual method is to prepare the site first by levelling, forming shuttering and compacting hardcore then laying reinforcing mesh where required.


We then mix and pour the concrete, whilst levelling and tamping

We finish the base by further tamping and then edging with an edging trowel.

Your new base then needs to cure before we can install your new oil tank
