Oil tank sweep

Whenever you are in the market to buy or sell a house, conducting an oil tank sweep should be considered. An undergoing oil tank sweep is a cost-efficient service that gives you peace of mind and can potentially save you thousands of dollars down the road.

Many houses built before 1975 used oil to heat their homes. Since then, most homeowners have switched to natural gas, but a significant portion of these tank were not removed. If you buy a house and later find that there is a leaking oil tank on the property, you are financially responsible for any necessary remediation costs, not the previous owner of the house. Brink’s Tank Services recommends scheduling an oil tank sweep as the first step when buying a home, and we'll do a proper assessment to find out if there are any tanks left on the property.

We use a variety of sophisticated methods to detect hidden tanks, including the use inductive metal detectors and ground-penetrating radar (GPR) during our underground tank inspections. Our tools are capable of detecting tanks two to three times deeper than their average depth.

First, a visual inspection is performed at the interior and exterior of the structure for signs of oil tank pipes. Then, the technician utilizes an inductive metal detector to sweep the area around the structure. This equipment will inform the technician of any large metal objects present underneath the ground. In any instance in which such an object is noted, Brink’s Tank Services can have the area evaluated with Ground Penetrating Radar. The radar provides the technician with an image detailing the approximate shape, size, and depth of the object causing the metallic reading. This allows our technicians to make an accurate determination whether or not an underground heating oil tank is present at the area in question.

In addition to oil tanks, our equipment can also be utilized to locate a number of other buried objects, including septic tanks, dry wells, or other tanks which may pose an environmental hazard.

We have oil tank removal specialists that are available 7 days a week and are fully trained to locate underground tanks. Our office is a complete team that will answer all your questions and process your reports within on business day after the inspection.
