Water in fuel can be costly and bad for your service station reputation. In addition, you will be required to carry out a costly and time consuming Loss Detection Investigation as specified by the EPA….
JG Pohl, Director, Integral Environmental Solutions Pty Ltd Sydney Australia
Fuel contamination by water ingress into your underground fuel tank, or Underground Petroleum Storage System (UPSS) can have dangerous and costly consequences, which is why it’s important to perform regular tank maintenance, leak detection monitoring and fuel testing and analysis.

EPA recommends UPSS owners check for corrosion in their tank systems storing diesel fuel; this applies to
both steel tanks and systems with fibreglass tanks. Owners reporting corrosion sometimes find sludge or particles, which may like coffee grounds, clogging their fuel filters. EPA recommends all owners of UPSS systems storing diesel fuel conduct a visual inspection by checking in their filters and inside UPSS system access points even if they have not seen symptoms in the filter; severe corrosion may already be established before symptoms appear in the fuel filter and an owner becomes aware of a severe corrosion issue.
Remember that this initial diagnostic observation of UPSS equipment visible from the surface may not show if corrosion or damage even if it exists in the UPSS system.

Water in fuel can be costly and bad for your service station reputation. In addition, you will be required to carry out a costly and time consuming Loss Detection Investigation as specified by the EPA reporting guidelines.

Even if your tank is not taking on water, but has been in the ground for several decades, it is still recommended that at minimum, you have a man-hole installed and get us to clean-out and conduct a forensic “eye’s on” internal inspection to check the tank integrity before a problem occurs.

In many cases, if we find excessive internal corrosion and holes inside the Underground Petroleum Storage System (UPSS), we have the service of full internal plugging and lining with Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) giving you peace of mind for an additional 25 years of service life.
