INFORMATION

Vents or vent pipes are used to minimize the buildup of excessive tank pressure that can occur when an oil tank is filled, emptied or a temperature change takes place. All tanks should have a properly installed vent pipe to relieve this pressure and alleviate the possibility of a tank bursting or collapsing. Any vent pipes that appear to be rusty, pitted, loose, severely dented/bent or broken off, should be replaced.
