Mike joined Fisher Tank Company as a Project Manager,and water tank assembly experts. He had previously worked for engineering firms, but was ready to tackle the contractor side of the business.

Pittsburg offers dry, dive and ROV inspections of water tanks. During a dry inspection the tank is drained and taken out of service. During dive or ROV inspections the tank remains in service.


The best way to ensure that your tanks last as long as possible is with regular maintenance services. These can help address problems before or as they occur, which can prevent them from worsening and save you money over the years.

Regular cleaning and inspections can prevent many issues, including thinning walls and corrosion that lead to leaks. In addition, it ensures that your tank meets legal and industry standards and helps you comply with regulations.

A well-maintained tank can last decades with proper care and service. This reduces the amount of time you spend dealing with septic tank problems and allows you to get more value from your investment in a septic tank.

A septic tank works to eliminate wastewater by using a natural process of filtering through the soil and water tables. This can help to keep local water quality high and reduce the need for new pipes that would otherwise be expensive.


Whether it’s an industrial water tank or a water tower used for potable drinking water, inspections are crucial to ensure proper operation and quality of the water being stored. In addition, routine tank cleaning helps prevent contamination events that can cause health related issues or lead to costly repairs.

A field service technician will conduct a visual inspection of the external condition of your chemical storage tank. This includes looking at the condition of the tank shell, foundation and appurtenances. This can include assessing for leaks, cracking or rusting.

A more in-depth, in-service inspection is performed by a certified API 653 inspector. The Fertilizer Institute and several states set a minimum inspection schedule for fertilizer ASTs. This includes examining the tank for the soundness of its engineering structure, checking the internal shell course, floor plates and piping for signs of corrosion and determining the likelihood that the tank is fit for continued operation. This inspection is done while the tank is empty and typically tied to your operation permit renewal schedule.


Keeping a watchful eye on tank interiors and exteriors can help you spot issues early, like pitting. Pitting is a sign that corrosion is causing damage to the tank or equipment, and should be addressed immediately to limit its effects.

It’s important to keep a close eye on your tank’s condition and perform regular cleanings. During cleaning, you can use the clean tank to perform an inspection yourself or bring in a professional for a more thorough assessment of the tank’s health.

For instance, if you’re switching the contents of your oil tanks from unrefined crude to gasoline, you may need a complete tank cleaning to ensure that no residuals and impurities are left behind. This would contaminate the new product and create a serious safety hazard. By catching these problems early, you can extend the life of your oil tanks and equipment. This reduces your overall costs for maintenance and replacement over the years.


While modern tanks can last longer than older ones, they still require inspections and maintenance, and will eventually need to be replaced. Knowing how to spot signs of a tank that is nearing the end of its life will help you plan for the future.

A tank’s lifespan can be cut significantly if it is subjected to repeated damage from storms, electrical surges, and other unexpected events that could compromise its structural integrity. Addressing these issues as soon as possible will prevent major problems down the road.

In addition to reducing costs for repair and replacement, regular inspections can keep your tank operating safely and efficiently. By addressing corrosion and other problems early, you can enjoy a long service life for your industrial storage tank. Having a well-maintained tank also helps you reduce maintenance costs and improve your bottom line.
