My tank is in my basement, and I have the draw from it on the bottom, via gravity feed, my filter is sludgy every year too.
Where do you get that sludge treatment, I need it for mine too.
I've been told you can have the tank drained and cleaned, and this will reduce the sludge, but not eliminate it from coming back.
You could try COD delivery to reduce the price of oil, or try Slomin's for one year, I think they are offering it at $3.50 right now.
When I am in need of a bottle I will pick it up while in Riverhead at Blackmans. They are at 940 West Main Street, Riverhead 11901 ...
In the screenshot I drive into the wholesale lot to the right of the building where you see the chain link fence..park in there behind the fence area and you will see a side door and just go in that door...
The sludge treatment is around $16-$17.00 dollars for a quart container and recommended initial dosage is 1 pint per 275 gallons of tank capacity.....I now just leave the bottle in a zip lock storage bag outside when I am expecting a delivery and usually leave a note for driver to add 1/4 of bottle....do this maybe 3-4 times during the year and I am good.
I also buy the filter replacements there. They are about a dollar and change.
As for a fuel oil delivery company thanks but I use a small family business where I have known the family for many decades....they try and give me the best price they can plus they have key to gate and after driver is done he just puts bill in my door....have like 30 days to pay them but I always pay them right away...long time family friends.
