If you have water in your heating oil tank this can cause several detrimental problems for your oil fired heating system including:

1. Water can enter the heating system instead of the fuel and cause damage to the burner or boiler.

2. Water can increase the growth of bacteria and as a result promote tank sludge.

3. The presence of water will rapidly increase rusting of a metal tank and metal components in the heating system.

4. Water can freeze in the tank which can then cause the fuel to degrade, also the possibility of water freezing in the pipeline blocking flow to the heating system.

We now offer a complete solution to water removal from a heating oil storage tank.

Kolor Cut Water Finding Paste – This paste is designed to change colour when in contact with water. This is used on a dip stick that you dip into your tank to find out the level of water that is residing in the bottom of your tank.

The Tank Sponge – This is a polymer filled sock that can be placed into your tank on the end of a handy recovery string, this polymer will soak up the water only from all types of heating oil. The tank sponge has a capacity of 1L

Inline Water Trap Filter – An inline water separating filter with a clear bowl and a drain tap, to allow you to see and drain off any excess water in the system. 3/8″ inline filter with a 100 micron stainless steel filter element.

Amazon Submersible Pump – A 12v submersible pump easily connected to a standard garden hose and dropped into the tank to pump out the water from the bottom of your tank.

    The water finding paste worked perfectly, I smeared a layer on the bottom 10cm of a plastic rod and It showed about 6cm of water in the tank. I checked again after pumping out 30 litres of water and it showed just a small amount of water left, so I dropped in the tank sponge and left it. I’ll check the water level again in a week and remove the sponge if it’s all gone.

    The water pumped out was thick with algae, it had partly blocked the oil line filter and the capacitor on the motor had failed probably because the motor and pump had tightened up. The boiler kept locking out until all the water was flushed from the fuel line.

    There’s plenty of paste left, in future I’ll check the tank regularly and before and after every oil delivery.

    I can’t really vouch for the tank sponge yet as it’s only just gone in the tank but the water finding paste is a great product and I’ll certainly buy more when the current tube is gone.

    Good quality items. I would have liked some instructions on how to use it, how long to keep it in the tank and how to dispose of it – or reuse it if this is possible. Found some advice on line but not in great detail for someone whose never used one before.
