Water Tank Refurbishment Offers Financial and Safety Advantages
Friday, January 11, 2013
When a water storage tank starts to show signs of corrosion there is a growing risk of bacteria growth within the tank and this can lead to the risk of Legionnaires Disease. Lining a water tank is an effective way to stop this problem happening. Water tank refurbishment also offers major savings relative to investing in new tanks and the costs of relocating and filling them.
There are different methods used to refurbish or repair a tank. The use of flexible tank lining materials has the advantage of offering quicker installation time relative to tank coating systems. Butyl is the most commonly used liner and has proven to be ideal for water storage tanks. It can be tailored to suit tanks of all sizes and shapes, and it can be vulcanised to fit irregular shaped tanks.
Tank liners are ideally suited to the environment where existing tanks are leaking or where there is evidence of the onset of corrosion.
Russetts tank refurbishment services are ideal for most storage tanks including:
Mastic sealed galvanized bolted panel tanks,
Elevated rectangular sectional GRP/pressed steel tanks,
Shaped concrete above and below ground basement tanks,
WRC approved drinking water tanks.
Our flexible rubber liner system is used to repair existing storage tanks that are leaking or suffering the effects of corrosion. The liner is installed within the storage tank and its function is to hold the liquid content while the existing tank provides the strength. The material we use meets all water industry regulations and is fabricated using specialist welding. For more details about our tank liner refurbishment, contact a RDL representative on 0870 7702800.
