The longer you wait to identify a tank problem, the more it can cost when it comes to clean up (soil remediation). You should make visual checks of your tank area and its fittings on a regular basis or have us perform soil testing with the use of a geoprobe to determine if your oil tank has leaked.
There is no tank to big or small. A typical residential underground storage tank size is typically between a 550 -2000 gallons.
Look Out for the Signs of a Leaking Storage Tank
Historically, residential and commercial fuel storage tanks have been the cause of a number of environmental issues. Once a tank begins to leak, it can contaminate the soil, groundwater and well water, and cause indoor air pollution.
Although tanks have a life expectancy of 15 years, that figure can be greatly affected by the tank’s location, and you may not be aware of a leak until the tank is excavated. However, there are several signs indicating that your tank has experienced a catastrophic release of its contents.
- Plant life near the tank begins to die
- Stains appear around the fill pipe
- Petroleum odors enter your house or business
- Rainbow colors appear in standing water or puddles following a rain
Several factors can cause a release to occur.
- Rust or decay
- Frost shifting
- Leaky fittings
- Accidentally broken feeder lines
