Floating roof drain incident

In a hydrocarbon storage tank, the floating roof drain valve was kept open during rainy season. One night, operators smelt hydrocarbon vapours in the dyke area and found hydrocarbon liquid coming out of the open floating roof drain. The connection of the floating roof drain to the roof had failed due to corrosion. Are you checking them for internal corrosion?
