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.
