Storage TanksNo matter where you are in the United States, your metal tanks and containers need permits. It doesn’t matter what’s in them — whether you use it to store chemicals, drinking water or even just to capture rainwater, you need to pass periodic inspection.

What’s more, any above ground storage tank is costly. If you want something that will last and really give you value for money, you get a high-end model, and you maintain it religiously.

Here, the experts at Heartland Tank Services share some ways to keep the inspectors happy and your tanks lasting as long as they possibly can:

1. Keep it away from farmland and drinking water sources.

If you don’t want extra costs after the inspection and to continue to use your tanks without any problem, set them up right from the start. You have to make sure that it’s far enough from drinking water sources and farmland not to cause any damage in case of a spill. Your inspector may ask you to move it further away if it’s too close.

2. Check it out as often as you can.

Sometimes, birds and other animals can do damage to your tank. Sometimes, a storm or temperature change can wreak havoc on the material your container is made of. For whatever reason your tank gets damaged, a routine check can fix it immediately and you won’t have any problems.

3. Get secondary containment.

In case a spill does happen, having a secondary containment system such as double walls, vaults, liners, and dikes are just some possible solutions. The containment system must not let any spillage through — don’t think about saving the content any longer when you’re designing your secondary system. Your inspector will thank you for being safe.

Why does the government have so many regulations for tanks? Even if you’re just catching rainwater, leakage and spillage can be harmful to the environment, nearby residents and even your own property.

Moving into a new home Buying a new home can be financially draining. There are simple things you can do, however, to minimize unnecessary costs. You will be surprised to discover that it’s the small things that make all the difference. They gradually get out of hand and before you know it, you have accumulated too many costs that would have otherwise been avoided. 

Here are things you can do to reduce your expenses

Insulate exposed water pipes

Exposed water pipes allow a lot of heat to be lost hence, you end up using more energy to heat your water. Cold areas like the basement are especially more prone to losing heat and therefore, by insulating the water pipes in this areas, you will massively save power.

Programmable thermostat 

Programmable thermostats have a built-in feature that allows you to program the rise and drop in your home’s temperature. Therefore, you will reduce the costs for cooling in summer and heating in winter. Don’t worry about installation because they are quite easy to install. They are also easy to use especially if you have a regular schedule.

Removing dust in vents of all the rooms

Inspect all your vents and ensure they are not covered by any dust. You can use a broom to clean all your vents or wipe them with a piece of cloth. This will also improve air circulation in your home. Here in Riverton, you can easily find cheap cleaning equipment for your new townhome.

Mark cracks on the wall with a masking tape

You may be wondering why you need to cover cracks with masking tapes. Well, this is a clever way of verifying whether the cracks in your house are growing. If you see any cracks out of the end of the tape then you have reasons to be worried. Repair them immediately to avoid any future costs that will be way off the amount you expected.

By taking simple preventive measures in your new home, you will save a lot of money in the long run. Don’t wait till it’s too late.
