Spill containment buckets prevent petroleum products from being released into the environment in the event of a spill or overfill. Over time, exposure to fuel and weather can cause containment buckets to deteriorate and become a source of leaks which are often overlooked.
Our proprietary spill bucket testing service verifies that spill containment buckets continue to perform according to manufacturer specifications and are able to prevent release of product into the environment.
In the event that a spill bucket is found to be leaking, our service technicians can repair or replace it and test the system again, saving the time and expense of a return visit.
The State of California, in Regulation AB 2481, now requires annual testing of spill containment buckets. According to the regulation, the spill containment bucket must be capable of containing the stored substance until it is detected and cleaned up so that contaminants do not migrate into soils or drinking water.
