Underground fuel storage tanks have to be replaced as time passes, just like your other equipment. The average lifespan of your underground fuel tank is around two years. When a tank is close to its retirement, you will find leaks, corrosion, or other problems. Purchasing a new one is a considerable investment, so there are a few things to consider before you pick one. Read on to learn more!
Know About the Regulations
If this is the first time you have ever replaced a fuel tank, that might mean you were not there for the initial installation. In cases similar to this, there are regulations regarding underground fuel tanks. You should be familiar with the newest regulations and other rules to make sure the one you pick meets them as well.
Pick the Right Fuel Tank for Your Own Needs
When it comes to the fuel storage tanks, there are all kinds available. There are different sizes, shapes, and materials to consider. Underground storage tanks are created from fiberglass or steel. Steel is the ideal choice if your operation is located in a space with extreme weather that affects the ground stability. Fiberglass has the added benefit of preventing corrosion in any environment, but it can cost a lot more to install.
Talk to Your Fuel Supplier About the Costs
The fuel tank supplier should be the first resource for information about a new underground storage tank. They should be able to help you decide which choices might be the right ones for your operations and let you know about the associated costs. You will need to pay for the tank, but there are other fees, such as installation, for you to consider for this process.
