Worse than a buried tank in the yard


Recommended Posts

A half-buried tank in the crawlspace??

I gave them the number for the guys that dig tanks out of the ground here, but they are machine operators, not groundhogs.

I'm thinking two guys with mattocks could dig this tank free and yard it out with a come-along in a few hours. Am I nuts?

The tank-removal guys around here use a 'jaws-of-life' metal-cutter to snip those apart in-situ... Don't forget to mention 'check for soil contamination' ... right.. ?

Big tin snips, sounds like the way to go.

The tank service company will clean up the site. That is their bread and butter.

Rob, are you saying it could be deemed to be my fault if there is oil in the ground? I found the stupid thing. [:)]
