Tank Trouble Tuesday

Water ingresses are a frequent topic of Tank Trouble Tuesday. They are common, but the source of the ingress varies widely.

TankCam is an excellent tool to evaluate the damage that caused an ingress, as well as the damage that an ingress may have caused.

This week we're featuring a water ingress in Illinois that caused streaking-- check out the full story below.

Tank Trouble Tuesday

Water ingresses in underground storage tanks can be tricky to pinpoint. You can verify with a tank tightness test, and in many cases a well trained technician can locate the general location of the leak.

However, exploring the extent of the problem is best done with a visual inspection. Our proprietary TankCam fits through any four inch tank riser and can show you the full extent of the damage to your tank, so you can fully assess the problem at hand.

Tank Trouble Tuesday

Today, our Tank Trouble Tuesday series features a standard water ingress investigation on an Illinois tank.

It can be difficult to pinpoint the source of an ingress, and also to isolate the leak inside the tank. Getting a good look at what's happening inside your tank is often invaluable for evaluating the problem.

Tank Trouble Tuesday


The structure of your tank bottom can effect the way your ATG probe detects fuel and water. 

The TankCam inspection on this Georgia tank found residual fuel trapped at the tank bottom between the welds and striker plate-- one of the many benefits of a visual inspection of the tank.

Tank Trouble Tuesday

Throughout the Tank Trouble Tuesday series, we've seen that breaches in double walled tanks are often first detected by interstitial monitoring.

Further investigation can be difficult, but a TankCam inspection is an excellent tool for examining the cause of an interstitial alarm and pinpointing the leak, as in the Florida tank below.
