(Newswire.net — March 31, 2015) North Vancouver, BC — CERC Oil Tank Removal has been removing underground oil tanks for Vancouver-area homeowners for many years. Now, the experts at CERC discuss the dangers of leaving an oil tank in the ground and how a spill can affect the surrounding environment. Fabio Chesia, owner, also discusses the effects of weather on underground tanks in his latest video.

Mr. Chesia begins by pointing out the obvious sign of a residential underground oil tank: the fill pipe. Approximately two inches in diameter, this pipe may or may not have a cap. Without a cap, rain fills that pipe with water, pushing any residual oil up to the surface. “This is where we start to have a problem,” says Mr. Chesia. “Homeowners may see a purple-brown oil slick on the grass as oil leaks, or they may smell an oily smell near the pipe.”

Once a leak has happened, only removal of the tank and subsequent cleanup will solve the problem. Oil can kill the grass and seep into the groundwater, causing serious problems for the homeowner and surrounding homes as well.
