Oil Tank Search
C.M. Burrows Inc. provides Oil Tank Search throughout the state of New Jersey and helps homeowners and Building owners determine if an oil tank is present. C.M. Burrows Inc. is experienced in performing an oil tank search, and testing in residential homes, new construction, renovations, and commercial buildings.
Why should I consider having an Oil Tank Search?
Many homes constructed were initially heated with oil. After a natural gas conversion was made underground oil tanks were forgotten about or never completely removed. We highly recommend that an Oil Tank Search be conducted to determine if an abandoned heating oil tank remains on the property.
Warning signs of an undisclosed buried oil tank:
- Home or building was constructed prior to 1975 and has natural gas heat.
- An above ground oil tank provides fuel for heat or hot water.
- Pipes are visible sticking up from the ground or driveway at the property.
- Extra lines are entering the basement from the outside and do not appear to be productive.
Hire a Professional to Perform the Oil tank Search:
The technician will first look outside and inside the home for clues that may indicate a past or current oil tank…i.e. the presence of an oil fired furnace, oil burner shut off switches, pipes, or lines exiting the foundation/ floor, patches indicative of oil lines etc. Second, utilizing electronic metal detection equipment, the technician will walk the grounds searching for any buried metallic objects. The detection equipment utilized is capable of locating metallic objects. This type of detection and visual inspections inside the home helps determine the existence of oil or storage tanks that may otherwise go undetected. If a tank is discovered, you will receive a written report detailing the location of the tank. Our report includes detailed findings and recommends the steps you should follow to avoid inheriting a potential environmental problem.
Do you need to find the locations of rebar, post-tension cables, pre-tension cables, conduits, pipes, inside a concrete slab, floor, wall, or ceiling before you cut, core, or saw.
CM Burrows Inc will perform the following steps in order to locate these materials inside the concrete.
Review old as-built drawing and interview facility personnel regarding construction design details of the concrete structure in question.
- Perform an initial visual on-site consultation with the client to determine the scope of work.
- Perform a visual inspection of the site. Inspect inside nearby utility closets to search for visual evidence of utility services.
- Perform ground-penetrating radar (GPR) test scans by scanning on top of the structure in question to determine the viability of the technology; if depth estimates are required and an object embedded within the slab is exposed, measure its depth from the surface, scan across it, and calibrate the depth scale in reference to this object.
- Create an imaginary or sketched survey grid within the entire survey area.
- Conduct a GPR survey within the entire grid.
- Mark the location of targets embedded within the concrete structure, such as rebar, post-tension cables, pre-tension cables, conduits, pipes or other potential obstructions, with chalk, paint, marker, tape, yellow, crayon, or wax pencil.
- Perform a final on-site evaluation with the client to explain the results of the survey, including a thorough explanation of any limitations or areas of concern.
