Secondary Containment

Beginning on April 11, 2016 owners and operators were required to install secondarily contained tanks and piping when installing or replacing tanks and piping. Owners and operators must use interstitial monitoring as release detection for these new or replaced tanks and piping. Automatic line leak detectors are still required for new and replaced pressurized piping.

Secondary containment applies to fuel tanks and piping that are equipped with an inner and outer barrier with an interstitial space. This space is monitored for leaks and includes containment sumps that monitor the piping.

Inspection of secondary containment systems check for fuel leaks and ensure that the system is working properly.

Our method can pin-point exact locations of any leaks that may exist. Our economical and effective vacuum test utilizes a limited amount of testing fluid saving costly liquid disposal associated with hydrostatic testing. See our youtube video below for more information.

Our testing includes:

  • Spill Buckets, Sumps and
  • Under Dispenser Containment (UDC’s)
  • Required every 3 years on single walled containment
  • Only needed on components that have a sensor
  • DPLeak Testing Method
  • NWGLDE Certified Testing Method
  • Results are 3rd Party Certified
  • Non-Volumetric Differential Pressure Vacuum Testing
  • Pin Pointed leaks for easy repair
  • System is not shut down
  • No Water is used
  • Eliminates Hazardous waste byproduct from testing
  • Traditional Hydrostatic Testing is available upon request.
