Oil Tank Sweep

Are you thinking about buying or selling a property?

When purchasing or selling a home in NJ, having an oil tank sweep performed is imperative to ensure your property is clear of any potential environmental hazards. The EPA has estimated over 100,000 unknown or undiscovered Under Ground Storage Tanks located in New Jersey alone. Half of all oil tanks removed have holes and require environmental cleanup.

Ground Penetrating Radar

Get a clear picture of your property's subsurface. We use radar pulses to image the subsurface. It detects the underground utilities and storage tanks with a non-invasive approach.

Do I need GPR?

While using GPR in conjunction with our traditional geophysical methods provides the most comprehensive results and is highly recommended, it is not always necessary. When we perform our sweep, we will convey our findings and consult with you on the option to have us employ GPR to make sure nothing is missed. 

We recommend Ground Penetrating Radar when:

• Evidence suggests a tank existed in the past like copper lines, vent pipe or fill port.
• Concrete areas are reinforced with wire mesh or rebar, including driveways, patio slabs, sidewalks and swimming pools.
• Areas with large amounts of metal throw off the metal detector's signals, including metal fencing, HVAC units, steel grates or covers.

Our process

Have a comprehensive scan you can rely on and a detailed report of our findings vital to the closing process of a house purchase in New Jersey.

Walkthrough

1

Our team of professionals performs a preliminary investigation to observe and record any former indications of an underground storage tank. It includes fuel lines, fills and vent ports and penetrations within the foundation's structure.

Magnetometer

2

Using a broad range of magnetic and metallic locators, they are used to detect magnetic fields of steel and iron objects. Using this industry-standard method, we can quickly scan and mark subsurface anomalies consistent with the dimension depth of Underground Storage Tanks (USTs).

RadioDetection

3

Using industry-standard radiodetection equipment, we will locate and trace utilities and oil tank fuel lines. This method provides the proper detection and marking of subsurface anomalies and utilities.

GPR

4

We employ only the latest technology in ground penetrating radar in our searches. Using GPR, we can quickly and accurately detect and estimate the depth of subsurface anomalies consistent with (USTs) and visually interpret their unique signatures.

Reporting

5

Once the oil tank sweep is complete, we provide you with a report of our findings. You will have a comprehensive sweep to give you the confidence to proceed with your purchase or project.

Liability is transferred to the new owner. If left unchecked after the close of the house, the liability and cost can skyrocket. Protect yourself with an easy oil tank sweep before buying a property to ensure you close on time and within budget.
