Identify the Source of the Leak
Distinguish leaks in the tank from leaks in vent or fill pipes. 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. Proper testing of the tank can help homeowners avoid costly removals.
Best Technology in the Industry
We use the Mesa 2D Test System which provides digital testing that is safe, fast, reliable and affordable. Our sophisticated testing technology can often evaluate the underground tank system in under 60 minutes.
State and 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.
Beware of companies claiming to perform a complete laboratory analysis overnight or on-site. The state approved soil testing method is complicated and takes time. Ask the company for the specific compounds tests. Check with our soil testing experts to make sure the company is performing an approved test!

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.
