Reco Biotechnology’s vacuum truck services can remove Underground Storage Tank bottoms (water and sediment) from your system. Water can accumulate in the bottom of your underground gas station tank from condensation or can infiltrate the system a couple different ways. Water in your tank means down time and no fuel sales.
What Qualifies as an Underground Gas Storage Tank?
As defined by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an underground storage tank system is a tank or combination of tanks and connected underground piping having at least ten percent of their overall volume below grade. While federal Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations only cover UST systems containing petroleum products or other hazardous substances, it’s important to contact your local authority to ensure your UST meets any requirements beyond the federal minimum.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE IS ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR FUEL STORAGE TANKS.
Why Should I Have My Underground Gas Station Tank Maintained?
In addition to the tank and associated piping, your UST system has pumps, valves, meters and filters through which the fuel flows on its way to being dispensed at the pump. These components are all finely tuned and calibrated, and are expensive to replace.
Having your tanks maintained every year or two constitutes a basic preventative maintenance program that can help you avoid costly repairs. Routine safety checks performed by your service provider can catch any symptoms of trouble such as low flow, foul-smelling or strangely colored fuel, or contaminated tank bottom samples. Any of these symptoms should trigger a call to the experts at Reco Biotechnology for tank bottom removal.
