dear Sir,

This gap is around 20 mm between annular plate and tank foundation but still we have not done Hydro test. actual cause is foundation contractor done chipping on foundation so the reason gap is coming. However our client asking us to give guarantee for this tank. but we are worried about this. so i wanted to know is there any tolerance given for this gap in API? or is there any method to rectify?

Thank you,
