A fueling facility in Tanknology’s Southeast region requested a TankCam inspection of a 10,000 gallon fiberglass tank to inspect for undesirable conditions or abnormal operating conditions. The tank held premium unleaded. The customer also requested a TankClean Remote Video UST Cleaning.

The TankCam inspection revealed a build up of residue and sludge on the bottom and sides of the tank. Debris was also found in the tank.
