Why do pre-bury and post-bury UST installation testing?
Fuel site owners and operators are required to do a UST tightness test prior to commissioning new sites as per EPA regulations.
Unfortunately, 90% of new or remodelled sites that pass a gauge pressure test have an installation issue such as water ingress and small leaks from pipes, fittings and vents. If left undetected it can mean cutting up concrete, excavation, repair and possible remediation to fix a leaking installation.
UST installation testing at both the pre-bury and post-bury stages ensure you’re putting a 100% tight fuel system into the ground, protecting your multi-million dollar investment from the get-go.
