The importance of speed of response is key to solving oil leaks quickly.

The leak was detected at a fire valve beside the oil burner. The oil burner was located inside the kitchen. The oil leak was located behind the kitchen units and under the floor. The oil dissolved the polystyrene insulation under the concrete finished floor and lodged in the foundation of the house. There was a strong odour in the house. Approximately 400 litres of oil had escaped.
