Does Tank Testing Work?
Tank testing is offered to homeowners to inform them as to whether or not their tank has leaked. Although common, this is not recommended. The test performed is not always completely accurate, and tells you nothing about the status of your tank for the days to come. The test is only good for the day the tank is tested. The safest solution is to simply remove your underground oil tank.
