Although the product level in the tank obscured much of the tank bottom, the inspection revealed that the top of the tank and the endcaps showed staining, scratches, corrosion and considerable pitting.

A fueling facility in Tanknology’s Midwest region requested a TankCam® inspection of a 10,000 gallon fiberglass tank to inspect for undesirable conditions or abnormal operating conditions. The tank, which had previously failed a tank test, held regular unleaded.

The inspection found sediment and debris on the tank bottom. A few small puddles of liquid were found on the tank bottom but no ingress was visible. A crack was identified on sidewall near center of tank with a dark and possible wetted area around it. A sheen, possibly from a water ingress, was visible at the bottom of the crack.
