“Dedicated to keeping our clients in compliance.”
The technicians at Tank Specialists provide fuel system monitor certification. Fuel system owners must have their systems tested and certified annually, and our trained and certified technicians can help you to meet this regulatory requirement.

Secondary Containment Testing (SB989):
Your underground storage tank must be tested every thirty-six months. Keeping up-to-date on this test, also known as the SB989 test, is an important component of your fuel system’s compliance. Our knowledgeable team members are ready to perform your secondary containment testing so that you can continue operating your system without interruption.

CARB Vapor Testing:
Another California mandated fuel system testing requirement is CARB vapor testing. Depending on your individual district, this testing is required every 12 months at the minimum. The technicians at Tank Specialists are prepared to perform this test so that you can meet this requirement.
Ensuring that your dispensers are measuring an accurate amount of fuel is vital to maintaining your profit margins and eliminating fuel loss. In addition to this important facet of business operations, dispenser calibration is also an annual statutory requirement. Whether you are concerned about your bottom line, or it’s simply time to meet this requirement, our certified technicians can perform this test to ensure your dispensers’ distribution accuracy.

Helium Testing is typically used to locate small leaks associated with Secondary Testing (SB989) failures. The helium is used as a tracer gas and its concentration is measured in order to pinpoint leaks related to underground storage tank (UST) systems. In addition to the many other tests we perform, Tank Specialists can perform this investigatory test and advise you of how to repair your system. Our construction department works closely with our testing technicians to help keep your system operational.

Line Tightness Testing:
Many of our clients inquire about the state required line integrity testing. This test is performed in one of two time frames based on the construction of your system. First, if your system is a Conventional Suction System, (with a foot valve located at the bottom of the tank), testing is required every 36 months. Next, pressure systems without mechanical line leak detectors require line tightness testing every twelve months. If your system is due for testing, rest assured that our certified professionals can help.
