During a real estate settlement, it is common for a prospective buyer to question the integrity of a tank before purchasing the property. An economical option is to perform a soil boring and field screen analysis around the base of an underground heating oil storage tank to asses soil conditions and any potential contamination concerns.
TestQuick takes pride in its approach to site investigations in regards to Underground Storage Tanks. With over 20 years experience in the industry, TestQuick possesses a wealth of knowledge in the the factors contributing to a tank's overall health. Soil condition, Pitch of grade, Electrolysis, Water table level, and Shell material are all important influences on a fuel system's integrity. These intangibles are extremely important when determining the health of a tank. Please allow us the opportunity to asses your underground tank for any potential hazards.
Normally during a soil boring and field screen analysis, a Photo-Ionization Detector (PID Meter) is used to determine the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emitted from the soil. This PID meter is basically a heightened nose for contamination. While these meters are generally very accurate, sending a soil sample to a PADEP Certified laboratory is highly recommended. Only NALEP-Accredited Laboratory analyses are accepted as definitive proof of soil conditions in the eyes of the state..
