When It’s Time To Replace Your Oil Tank Gauge – Call Us
Tank Gauge Replacement Made Easy
The gauge on your oil tank gives readings based on how much fuel is left. It’s also the first place to check if something doesn’t seem right. a clear sign something s up is your gauge showing a full tank when your boiler won’t come on.
What Causes Oil Tank Gauges To Malfunction?
A damaged gauge cover leaves it prone to heating oil leaking in. This, in turn, jams the float/indicator (in the case of older non-digital models), preventing it from giving an accurate reading. Other issues that occur are broken and dislocated parts which can be put down to general wear and tear over time. The question is, should you try and set these small parts in place or go to the trouble of purchasing new individual parts for the gauge?
