Free Tank Replacement Budget Consultation

Single wall tank replacement must be completed by December 31, 2025; many double-walled tanks have or soon will pass their useful life of 30 years and will need to be replaced.

Western Pump is here to help.

The State of California Senate Bill #445 requires owners and operators to permanently close or replace Underground Storage Tanks containing hazardous substances not in compliance with new requirements by December 31, 2025.

This new law affects all single-walled tanks as well as those not designed and constructed in accordance with alternative fuels.

Tank owners/operators have three options before December 31, 2025:

  1. Close the tank in place after being authorized by the board
  2. Remove the tank from its site completely
  3. Remove and replace the tank
Loans and grants are available through the RUST program to assist eligible small businesses in removing single-walled Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and replacing them with double-walled USTs. Do not wait until the very last minute or you may miss out on a great opportunity for funding.


In addition to needing to meet the requirements of CA Senate Bill #445, facility operators with aging USTs may also need to consider removing or replacing them. Most manufacturer warranties cover USTs for 30 years. Research on national trends by ASTSWMO and the EPA reveals that the average historical UST lifespan is about 20 years. Many insurance companies will not insure tanks older than 20 to 25 years old. Facility operators with older USTs are faced with difficult choices.

Customer Testimonials

“Oftentimes, in the “hustle and bustle” of living within our fiefdom, we fail to give thanks or appreciate a true professional company. I’ve had the opportunity of providing service and receiving service, of working with high-caliber professionals and those who are striving to become professional. Western Pump is of the first of this group. It took them less than twenty-four (24) working hours to get our gas station(s) up and running!"

“I just wanted to acknowledge the great service Western Pump provided to Kearny. They fixed the Veeder-Root control panel green light by replacing only the front panel. And all the history was retrieved. No data was lost, whereas I was under the impression that this repair was going to cost us a fortune and would be impossible without changing the whole circuit panel. Smart people! We are lucky to have them.”


“I just wanted everyone to know how much I appreciate Western Pump’s attitude, commitment, and work ethic. They always come ready and supplied, work efficiently, and have the knowledge to get the job done right the first time. This company stands out to me personally because they show extra commitment and dedication. They are effective communicators, great with organization, and efficiency. They always complete the job before leaving.
