Oil Tank Search

Brink's Tank Services will perform an interior and exterior sweep of your property. First, our highly trained and certified technician will look inside the home for clues that may indicate a past or current oil tank. Second, we will use a metal detector or ground penetrating radar (GPR) to search for any buried metallic objects. Doing both an interior and exterior search will help us determine if an underground storage tank (UST) is buried on the property. If a suspicious object is discovered, we will require further evaluation, and a full description of our findings will be described in the sweep report.

What Our Clients Say About
Brink's Tank & Environmental Services

Do You Have An Underground Tank?

As a home or property owner, it's best to look for refill valves in your yard or home to assist with oil tank detection. Fill valves are used as the access point to underground oil tanks so, if you can find a fill valve, chances are there is a tank just below you. Also, if you see a valve near your gas meter, you can be sure that you have an oil tank left underground. Fill valves are usually only inches off the ground in your yard or garden. However, in some cases, your fill valve may collapse with the ground or be covered in snow or leaves, making it difficult to notice.

If you've found vent pipes in or near your home, you may also have an oil tank that needs to be removed. Vent pipes were previously used for ventilation of underground oil tanks because oil was transferred to heat homes. If you find that your home has a vent or vent valve that appears on the ground, contact a professional at Brinks Tank Service.

  • The home is located in an older neighborhood (pre-1960s) where most homes used to, or currently, heat with fuel oil or kerosene.
  • Natural gas service was established years after the house was built.
  • Visible fill and vent pipe coming from the ground.
  • An above ground storage tank is present (often installed to replace a leaking underground storage tank).
  • Copper fuel delivery and return lines are in the basement or crawlspace (often cut off at the wall).
  • Oil staining or odor may be present in basement or crawlspace walls.
