Tank Trouble Tuesday

Water ingress investigations are a large portion of our Tank Trouble Tuesday features, but they can be complicated to pinpoint, as was the case in the fiberglass tank featured below.

Tank Trouble Tuesday

Operators of fueling sites with fiberglass tanks that were installed after the EPA 40 CFR part 280 UST regulations were launched in 1988 are now looking at a tank population that is between 20 and 30 years old.
Prudent operational practices suggest that it's time to evaluate those tanks and fueling systems – and get solid answers to some really important questions: What's the condition of the tanks? Can you get by with them for another 5 or 10 years? Do any need to be repaired or upgraded? Do any need to be replaced now? And if so, how do you prioritize them?
These can be tough questions to get good answers to. But those answers are important. If you could get a good look at the conditions inside your tanks, what would you see?

Tank Trouble Tuesday

As every tank owner knows, underground storage tanks are major responsibilities. As the tanks age or change hands, UST owners may find it increasingly difficult to know the true conditions of their tanks.

TankCam visual inspections are the perfect tool to determining what's happening inside your tanks, including identifying the cause of a 50 gallon/day leak, as in this fiberglass tank.

TankCam inspections are an excellent tool to determine the extent of a problem observed in your UST, as in the case of the flaking fiberglass tank shown below.

Tank Trouble Tuesday












Tank Trouble Tuesday was started to show the industry rarely seen images from the inside of underground storage tanks. Some of the images show severe problems like corrosion, cracking, blistering and delamination.

This Thanksgiving week, however, Tanknology gives "tanks" for all of the USTs in the United States that are in good condition: like the fiberglass tanks shown above, or the 30 year old steel tank shown below.
