I think I got a pretty good price for the removal of a basement oil tank and replacement with a Roth tank. additionally I had the fill pipes and vent changed from front of house to the side yard. Every hole was cemented back and filled with cement. Also had a jungle of plumbing changed from where the street valve came in and a convoluted tangle of pipes and leaking valves hooked the house up to an ancillary pump to up the pressure for the irrigation system. It hasn't been run in 20 years since the new mains went in.
The whole job $2250.00 Good Deal? It's done, and it was done quickly and cleanly in 3 sessions after work, also nice not taking time off.

My wife just had an oil tnk removed and replaced her in Jersey. Her mother's place is 65 years old. She paid the oil co. $1200 including necessary permits.
The extra plumbing you did would have cost alot more if done by a pro. Good job.

roth tanks are grat but only warrantied if installed by a roth certified tech. not a diy project. not due to any difficulty just don't plan on any warranty coverage if you can't provide roth with a certified installers name

Not a DIY job. The business that did the work has been around over 20 years and include a licensed plumber and electrician. How does one check to see about certification? I have all the paper work and propaganda from Roth.
