    Question Oil Tank

    Hey guys,

    I have an oil fired boiler with a 250 gallon tank above ground - oil line fed from the bottom.
    Recently some oil company filled my tank without my permission.
    They said they can come pump it out - but I am hesitant on allowing them to do it
    in fear of my tank being damaged.
    What can happen if they do this? Will the sludge on the bottom get disturbed?
    Will it clog my filter and feed line?

    No, let them pump it out.
    [B]No, plumbing ain't rocket science. Unlike rocket science, plumbing requires a license[B]
