  • Includes soil analysis, a tank test report, the official laboratory report, and our analysis interpreting the findings of the inspection for you.

Cost: Same as the above inspection with an additional fee to evaluate four samples. Includes state certified laboratory samples.
Reports: 3-5 days. Expedited laboratory reports are available for an extra fee.
Test Results: Tank results are available on-site. Soil results are available in 3-5 days.

Will tank testing damage my tank?
No! ATS uses state of the art technology that will not harm the underground tank.

Years ago, many companies used air pressure testing as a means to evaluate underground tank systems. This type of testing could potentially damage the tank and associated piping. Today, strict pressure testing is not an approved test method in most states.

My oil company performed a water test and their representative concluded the tank does not have a problem. Do I need to test the tank using another method?
Absolutely yes!

Underground tanks may leak without ever taking on water. It is possible that a tank located in a dry area may have holes and water may never enter the tank because the water table is far deeper than the buried tank.

Also, finding water in a tank may not indicate a tank failure. Often, water can enter the tank through small leaks in the vent pipe or fill pipe. Vent or fill pipe problems are easily repaired.

Advantages of using ATS for tank testing:

  • Distinguish leaks in the tank from leaks in vent or fill pipes.
  • Why is this important? A pipe leak that is mistaken for a tank leak may result in removing an entire tank when only a minor, inexpensive piping repair is required. Do not waste money!

  • On-site results!
  • Our sophisticated testing technology can often evaluate the underground tank and system in under 90 minutes.

  • The best technology in the industry.
  • We use the Mesa 2D Test System which provides digital testing that is safe, fast, reliable and affordable!

State & Federal Certifications:
All of our testing processes are federal and state approved testing methods for evaluating underground tanks. In addition, ATS holds current licenses in several cities, counties, and states.
