What is the Number 1 Reason Oil Tanks Are Missed During Oil Tank Sweeps That Do Not Use GPR ? ?

Oil tanks can be comingled with other buried materials, or the tank is filled with sand. Not using Ground Penetrating Radar to identify subsurface structures are some reasons oil tanks are missed.
MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J. - Aug. 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Many companies perform Oil tank sweeps, Oil tank companies, engineering companies and home inspectors perform oil tank sweeps using a metal detectors. Metal detectors can miss buried oil tanks because they lack the necessary sensitivity to see below 2 feet. Also metal detectors can not see through Concrete or Asphalt limiting there use to only soil.  Ground Penetrating Radar will see both metallic and no metallic objects  including PVC pipe, electrical conduit, sink holes, construction debris, Asphalt/concrete, and septic systems . Environmental Systems uses Ground Penetrating Radar to identify buried structures to a depth of 18 feet. Also ground penetrating radar utilizes a screen to provide images of what buried underground. Most metal detectors just beep. If a tank is filled in place with concrete or sand or stone the metal detector may not read the tank due to substrate interferences. Ground Penetrating will provide images of the buried material. Ground Penetrating Radar can also identify soil disturbances such as excavations and recent trenching that may have soil contamination.. Do not settle for a metal detector used for your next sweep insist on Ground Penetrating Radar.
