Checking your diesel tanks. We have cleaned a number of tanks by now and confirm: There is a good reason for anyone to look into this, before it gets too late!

March 22, 2017


After years of sailing, sediment and other contaminations is found in the diesel tank and needs to be removed. In worst case your diesel filters can become clogged up exactly at the wrong time with an catastrophic outcome.


Cleaning your diesel tanks is thus an important part of boats being refitted by Adams Boat Care. For this reason, we have invested in a special diesel pump and diesel tank in order to empty the tank(s). To save fuel, it is thus a good idea to arrive at Adams Boat Care with rather empty tanks, not to loose to much diesel. Of course, you would never put back contaminated diesel, or else the entire work would be in vain.

The cleaned water tank. And while we’re at it, why don’t do the same with the water tanks? Have you looked into your tanks lately? Maybe time to change hoses as well? Adams Boat Care is helping you to judge what needs to be done and what can and should be checked and refurbished.
