Oil Tank Sweep (Locating) Services

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.

Steve Rich is a great group of professionals that make a messy job less stressful. They took care of two of my commercial properties. One was an easy oil tank removal and the other was not so easy. There was remediation work that needed to be done and there were many people that they needed to coordinate with including PSEG, county and city departments, as well as the tenants of the buildings. They did it all with the upmost competency and professionalism. Everything was always explained and reviewed with me and even the owner came to the job site for a meeting. Suzanne took great care of our remediation and educated us along the way so we never had a doubt this was being done correctly. If I could give them 6 stars I would. I highly recommend them for any job, commercial or residential.

I received the recommendation for Steve Rich and Associates, Inc. from a friend who raved about their service. My first contact was during the weekend and online. Steve called me back on the next work day. And from there everything was clearly explained. All my questions were answered. Steve and his office had everything organized. The permit came in a timely manner. PSE&G labeled the gas and water lines. Everything was taken care of. The day of the oil tank removal went smoothly. All work was done neatly. A tarp was put out to collect the dirt. The hole that was dug was precise and just the size needed to remove the tank. The crew that came walked me though the process and answered all my questions. It was arranged for PSE&G to be there to make sure none of the digging for the oil tank was done around the gas line. The whole process could not have been easier. I wholeheartedly recommend this company for removal of an underground oil tank. And bonus!!! My oil tank was intact and had no signs of contamination in the soil.

I recently had to have an underground oil tank removed for a sale of a home. Everyone of their staff members, and I dealt with quite a few people were exceptional. They assisted me promptly. They were professional, courteous, and fair with their pricing. All around a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them.

I reached out to Steve Rich for our oil tank removal - we were selling our house, and needed to have it removed. The service from Steve Rich is great, and easy and to the point. Their prices were better than 2 other companies I reached out to, and Glenn responded to my inquiry super fast. They also helped guide me for getting the permit. Glenn helped answer all my questions, and we were able to get a schedule pinned down in about a week (it depends on your town), but everything went smooth, and Glenn sent the completed paperwork the next day to ensure we could move forward with the sale. The actual extraction was super smooth. Danny was the excavator, and he used a detector and found exactly where the tank was, and they were done in just a few hours. Overall, great experience for something so intimidating. Much easier than I expected, and better price than the others I reached out to. Recommended for Passaic county and wherever else they might serve in the NE.
