I have a canned comment about oil tanks to protect myself as well as a little speech I make about oil tanks to the client. I used to get some push back from agents when I called out a tank but not so much any more as the agents are now becoming aware of the oil companies attitude towards older tanks.

I think it comes from the oil delivery companies insurance provider. I tell my clients that most tank failures occur when it's being filled, therefore, the liability falls on the delivery company.


We try to date every tank via the serial tag but you know how that goes.

Thanks for the "THEN move on" reply.
Ive been inspecting since 1992 and would like to know the answer to the question I posted.
I prefer to be an educated inspector rather than one who "moves on"

There are always DIFFERENT ways to do something .... Different jurisdictions; different manufacturers; different contractors; some states have VERY specific instructions for LICENSED inspectors, such as REPORT IT & REFER IT TO A LICENSED ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR to evaluate & repair.


MANY inspectors I know who think they NEED to know how a technical repair is done end up doing something stupid to try and exhibit their superior knowledge AND end up getting hosed because they tell a buyer, seller , etc HOW its supposed to be done AND that ain't the way the EXPERT does it OR because then the buyer / seller tries to do it and screws it up ... So what I said above.



I've been inspecting since 1976 ..... See it / Report it / Refer it / Move on.
