Exploratory Digs Are Considered A Scam
When a tank sweep is performed on a property, field technicians are looking for several indications that an underground heating oil tank exists including:
- Scan of the 30′ perimeter around the home
- Fuel lines
- Vent pipes
- Fill pipes
These factors should all determine whether or not an oil tank is located underground. Exploratory Digs are most likely recommended after a tank sweep in cases where a company is trying to up-charge an unnecessary service. When a Tank Sweep company suggests an exploratory dig because they are “unsure” or found a “metallic anomaly”, DO NOT move forward with their services. Tank sweeps are specifically designed to detect if a tank is in the ground or not. If your tank sweep company can’t answer that, why would you pay for it? ‘Exploratory Dig’ is a term used by companies to take your money when they already know if it is a tank or not.
