    Gentlemen:
    I have seen more than one buried plastic tank float out of the ground with high groundwater.
    Also, they may have a tendency to collapse if left empty.
    My 2 cents.

    Yikes! I did not think about the tank collapsing..... would you leave an underground tank empty?
    I hear ya on the float, I have can't be sure till I test it.... would you agree with my test procedure....also, typically, what type of floats are used in these underground storage tanks?
