I was wondering if anyone knows what a pipe like this coming into a basement wall in Hamilton ON could be.
It’s about 1.5 " in diameter. It is about 30 inches below ground level. Sorry it’s not a great photo. My fear is, it could be a buried oil tank? If it is, the tank must be on it’s side because of the depth. It is near the front of the house. There are no pipes coming out of the ground outside the wall. There is a paved walkway covering the area where the tank would be if it is there. I’ll probably bring in a metal detector or radar system but if anyone has any thoughts what it is other than a buried tank I would be interested to hear the theories. I’ll also see if there are any tank removal companies that can safely remove the cap and check inside. Thanks for any thoughts.
