When it comes to huge homes or companies, septic tanks tend to pose a huge threat as well as exist as a common problem. As underground storage tanks are below ground and out of sight, it is common to not know their location. But with the help of a reliable UST inspection provider and the following methods, the location of a UST can be clearly identified.

* Ask your tank testing provider to looks at the outline or sketch of the house ‘as-built’ design to find the tanks location. If the systems are old, then such designs would not be included.

* Contact the previous owner, if any.

* Nowadays new underground storage tanks are partly at a rise which appears to be above the surface of the ground.

* UST testing providers can probably insert a certain tool appropriately into the ground in order to identify any area that is suspecting. However this must be conducted in a proper and gentle manner where the soil is soft. This is only to avoid any possible damage to the underground tank. Hence, the expertise and technology of a UST compliance testing provider is important.

* If the tank components are mostly made out of metal, then a metal detector can be considered as an ideal option.

* Usually above a septic underground storage tank, grass is always greenest and snow probably melts faster.

These options may not be foolproof but definitely help in assisting you to locate a septic tank. Hence, it is vital to seek valuable help from a reliable and experience UST testing service provider.
