State Law Requires Tank Level Alarms
Tank level alarms are required by state law in many cases as a safety measure to protect the environment and communities from potential hazards.
Some states have laws in place that require tanks containing hazardous or flammable liquids to have level alarms to detect and prevent leaks or spills. These laws are put in place to minimize the risk of environmental contamination and potential health hazards to nearby communities.
Additionally, state laws may also require tanks containing potable water to have alarms to detect and prevent leaks or overflow. These laws are put in place to ensure the safety and quality of the water supply for communities.
Another reason why state laws require tank level alarms is to prevent tanks from running dry, which can cause damage to the pump, motor and other equipment in the system. Running a tank dry can also lead to costly downtime and repairs.
In some states, tank level alarms are also required by law as part of regulations for underground storage tanks (USTs) which are used to store gasoline and other hazardous materials. These regulations put in place by the state and federal government, require certain safety measures for USTs, including level alarms, to prevent leaks and spills.
In conclusion, state laws require tank level alarms as a safety measure to protect the environment and communities, ensure the safety and quality of the water supply, and prevent costly downtime and repairs. Additionally, it’s also a part of regulations for underground storage tanks.
