How it works
An SREC technician will arrive at your site. We typically start inside. The technician will enter the basement or furnace area of the dwelling. The technician will be looking for patchwork in the foundation walls which is consistent with tank removal.
The technician will search for abandoned piping or copper lines in the wall or floor. If any lines are found, SREC will connect a transmitter to the line and return outside with a receiver to locate the exact area.
If no lines are present, SREC will return outside and thoroughly inspect the foundation for any oil vent or fill pipes. If a pipe is found, again, a transmitter will be connected and SREC will trace the piping with a receiver. If no pipes are found, SREC will scan a 30-foot radius around the structure to a depth of 8 feet searching for any large metallic objects which are consistent with the size and shape of an underground storage tank. Are inspections guaranteed? To date, every single inspection report contains a margin of error and loophole in the report. Yes, even our basic service contains this. There are more and more underground objects and utilities in the ground. A basic search does a great job and even with the contingencies, lenders understand and accept the reports with a disclaimer.
If a tank is found during the sweep, and you contract with us to do the removal, you will be fully refunded the cost of the sweep (normal oil tank sweeps range between $200 and $250). The amount will be credited against the cost of the tank removal.
