We were recently asked to provide our expertise to a domestic heating oil spill a short journey from the Soilutions office in Edinburgh. Nothing too unusual there, we are an Accredited Spill Contractor after all.
What was curious though was the apparent cause of the spill – the copper pipe connecting the fuel tank in the back garden to the residential central heating system, passed through an area used as a toilet by the homeowners’ dog. The dog urine had corroded the pipe over time, eventually causing it to fail. ‘Spending a penny’ has ended up costing a lot lot more!
