Storage Tank Removal Tips

How can I tell if my oil tank is leaking?

It's easier to tell when an above ground tank is leaking since it's always visible, but underground storage tank leaks are a bit harder to detect. In some cases, it can take years before an underground storage tank leak is detected. 

Be aware of the signs that a leak has occurred:

  • There is dead/dying vegetation in the area of the tank

  • The soil in the area is darker than the surrounding native soils

  • The area around the fill pipe is stained

  • You can smell heating oil odors in the house/coming out of the ground

  • Fuel consumption spikes even though the weather isn't especially cold

  • There is an oily rainbow sheen on the water beneath the tank, in basement sump, etc.

  • If your well water develops a strange taste, odor, or color

  • There is water in fuel lines

If you see any of these signs, contact an underground tank testing company immediately.
