Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How long is my new tank guaranteed for?
A: It depends on the type of tank. Guarantees generally last for 10-30 years depending on the model of the tank.
Q: I converted to gas recently. Is it necessary to abandon or remove my existing oil tank?
A: Absolutely. An old oil tank still has some oil and sludge in it, even if it has been pumped out. After a period of time, it is bound to decay. This will cause an oil spill, and it will also cause the ground to sink.
Q: How long will my work take?
A: An above-ground or basement installation should take about half a day. A buried installation typically takes a full day. Foam abandonments take up to an hour and a half, depending on the temperature. Sand and slurry abandonments will take no more than a day.
Q: How long does it take to remediate an oil spill?
A: Oil Spills are harmful can cause serious environmental problems. For this reason, Windmill makes spill remediation a priority and may take as few as 3 days up to several weeks.

A: Yes, Windmill is committed to completing every project as quickly and efficiently as possible. Because of this, our expert technicians work in the rain and snow. Short of a weather disaster, Windmill will be there!!
Q: Do you require a down-payment?
A: Down-payments are preferable, but not necessary.
Q: Do I have to be home?
A: For installations, buried removals, and any other work that requires access to the inside of your house, you absolutely must be home. However, no one needs to be present for an abandonment because no access to the house is required.
Q: What do you do with the oil you removed from my tank?
A: Oil taken from an abandoned or removed tank is transported to a licensed disposal facility.
Q: What do you do with contaminated soil?
A: Contaminated soil is first stockpiled on site until it is approved for disposal. It is then carted to a licensed facility, where its contaminant levels are checked.
