-- Many home buyers rely on a " Oil Tank Sweeps " to see if any buried Oil Tanks are on the Property. However if the company uses a metal detector or does not scan a entire property a buried oil tank may be missed. "Filled in place" oil tanks may also be missed if the tank top is removed. Ground Penetrating Radar is the only reliable method to identify the presence of buried oil tanks. If anomalies are found, extra cost soil boring should be used to identify and verify the underground structure identified. A buried freezer may give the same image as a buried oil tank. Buried construction debris such as Asbestos and concrete may also provide a false positive readings along with abandoned septic tanks. A home buyer still has to be cautious and should pay additional fees for soil borings or excavation to see exactly what the buried objects are before closing. Do be fooled by a company who minimizes the oil tank process. A metal probe to investigate is not soil boring as contaminated soil can not be identified with a metal probe.
