Tank Trouble Tuesday

Many of our TankCam inspections are requested after a water ingress is detected on site.

Water ingresses may be caused by an easily fixable faulty tank component or may be caused by a fault in the tank itself. Due to the cause of this ingress-- a large crack allowing groundwater to enter the tank-- we recommended that this Colorado tank be removed from service until assessment regarding repair or replacement could be made.
