How can you tell if you have an underground oil tank? Well, the surest way is to have an official tank sweep done, where a technician comes out and uses a magnetometer (similar to a metal detector) to “sweep” your property to make sure that an underground oil tank does not exist.
However, there are visual clues that you can look for either in your basement or in your backyard. Is there a pipe that is simply capped off? Is there a valve that leads to nowhere? Do you see any oil soaked patches of dirt? While these visual clues can help you determine if there is an underground oil tank, the only way to be sure is to get a tank sweep done. It is an inexpensive way to have peace of mind when you are thinking of buying or selling your home.
