|HOW P3 CAN HELP|
|P3 provides you with proper documents, guidance documentation and reporting to ensure you are meeting all of your cathodic protection testing requirements.|
|To view the status of your underground storage tanks in P3, all you need to do is go to the Reports menu and select the Cathodic Protection Flash Report.|
|The Cathodic Protection Flash Report will tell you how many underground containers you have that have not been inspected, how many have been tested at least once but fall outside of the requirements, how many containers are current, any tanks that might require servic (such as an anode retrofit, dielectric union or a tank replacement), and finally any containers that were left unspecified during data entry (so that you can further research and decide if cathodic testing is required).|
A full list of affected customers and containers is available when you click on any of the numbers in the report.
Documents to help you become compliant can be found under the P3 menu. The proper form is available under Forms and Documentation, and guidance documentation offering step-by-step instruction and troubleshooting tips can be found under Guidance Documentation.
