Sourcing the best water tank liners
Thursday, March 27, 2014
Water tank liners are part of water retention systems which are often overlooked. However, anyone who has a had a tank liner installed in their pressed steel, concrete or galvanised tank will know that without a flexible, durable liner supported by a protective underlay, your tank is left vulnerable to cracking or the onset of corrosion and bacteria colonisation.
At Russetts Development Limited (RDL), we understand the importance of selecting the most durable water tank liner that will withstand shrinkage and cracking as well as remain flexible and impervious across a wide range of temperatures. With over twenty years’ experience in the industry, we are uniquely positioned to fabricate and install the correct material, be it for a potable water storage tank, below the ground concrete tanks, or for larger products such as a reservoir, lake, or slurry lagoon.
If you are in the market for a water tank liner, then you have come to the right place. Keep reading to find out how we can help you select the right material to ensure your water works for you.
Selecting a water tank liner
Despite the fact there is fierce competition within the liquid containment market, we at RDL pride ourselves on the fact we cater for a wider scope of projects and offer the widest array of services. The fact we fabricate, supply and even install various water retention lining materials sets us apart – whereas others merely start the job, we manage it from start to finish.
So, how does one go about selecting the perfect water tank liner? We have broken the process down into three simple steps to help you get the job done right the first time.
Select the right material. Liquid storage is a field that requires a thorough understanding of liquid dynamics, science and engineering. Not all water tank liners are the same. The secret to choosing the correct tank liner is to be sure you fully understand what you need. RDL supply Butyl and EPDM flexible rubber liners for water containment projects, which are ideal for tanks due to their outstanding features and benefits: remain flexible and impervious across a wide range of temperature extremes, puncture and frost resistant, durable and resistant to the sun and UV rays.
Work closely with an expert. Too many DIY enthusiasts are convinced they have the skill, equipment and know-how to complete the task. Invariably, they fall short. To get the job done to a standard where the water is potable and perhaps most importantly, securely contained, you need to work with a team which has the reputation and experience that we have. We fabricate liners to exact tank dimensions take to the site and, in the case of above ground galvanised tanks, we hang the liner securely in place by adding a steel eyelet to the top circumference of the tank liner to co-inside with the bolt pitch of individual tank manufacturers tank panels. This systems improves the installation and security of the hanging liner.
Look for a diverse array of services. Do not be fooled by companies specialising in one area. Unlike other companies, RDL has worked in multiple industries. This means that we bring secondary knowledge to every project, no matter how small, so if your requirements suddenly change, or you are inspired to link multiple projects, you won’t have to look elsewhere.
