Numerous industry studies have indicated that even a small amount of water at the bottom of a tank can ultimately lead to corrosion. With the recent widespread corrosion caused by water in tanks, marketers are looking to detect lower levels of water so they can react sooner before corrosion sets in.
One of the leading causes for extended service visits reported by service technicians is the inability to access tank sump equipment due to accelerated corrosion. The longer the service call, the larger the bill.

One of the major reasons cited by marketers for increases in maintenance costs is accelerated corrosion inside their Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) tanks and on containment sump equipment for fuels with higher ethanol concentrations. Corrosion of critical fuel system components, like the submersible pump, makes it difficult to access and service equipment, leading to longer service trip times.
