I recall a story about a homeowner who had the old oil tank removed from
their basement when switching to a natural gas boiler. The filler
for the old tank was still outside and you guessed it, an oil supply
truck driver hooked up to the tankless filler and quite a few gallons
were dumped into the home's basement. It would be common sense to block
or remove the filler to any old oil tank to keep such a mistake from
Light empty tank might float up out of the
ground, during wet weather? Years ago, I
think I remember hearing of empty inground
swimming pool rising up a bit.

A cow-orker had a pool do that. He emptied it to scrub rust stains
(hair pins) off the bottom. He didn't get finished until late at
night and didn't want ground water backing up unto it so closed the
drain. In the morning the whole boat was 4' out of the ground. He
forgot about the tide. Oops.
