Why Regular Oil Tank Pumping is Necessary

Over time, water, sediment, and sludge will inevitably accumulate at the bottom of your oil tank. If left alone, these substances can cause many problems:

  • Sludge buildup makes it harder for fuel to flow correctly through oil lines and equipment. This can lead to blocked fuel lines, damage to your boiler or furnace, and interruptions in your heating system.
  • Sediment and water take up space meant for heating oil. This decreases your total fuel capacity and means you must refill your tank more frequently.
  • Water at the bottom of the tank can lead to corrosion and rust, shortening the lifespan of your oil tank.
  • Sludge at the bottom of a tank can harbor bacteria and cause fuel contamination and odor issues.


To prevent these problems, the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) recommends pumping out your oil tank at least once every 2-3 years to remove any accumulated sludge and water. All American Environmental follows NJDEP’s guidelines to ensure your tank is properly maintained.

Tank Pumping Process

When you book All American Environmental for a tank pumping service, the team will arrive on time and prepared. They start by opening the fill port on top of your tank and inserting a specialized suction pump. The pump removes all water, sludge, and sediment from the bottom of your tank.

After thoroughly cleaning the tank, the technicians use absorbent pads to soak up any remaining moisture and residue. They’ll also record the volume of water and sludge removed so you know precisely how much buildup was present. The area around the tank is cleaned evenly, leaving your property just as before.

Before packing up, All American Environmental will check fuel levels and provide a customized recommendation for when your next pumping service is needed based on your tank size and type. Typical frequency is 12-36 months between pumpings.
