Risk Factors & Signs of Tank Damage
Storage tanks are subject to pressure and corrosion from water, fuel or other liquids contained within. The sheer weight of the liquid puts pressure on the joints, walls and base of the structure. Over time wear and tear occurs leading to corrosion which causes contamination of the water. In addition leaks can develop which allows further contamination due to the ability of foreign material and bacteria to enter the tank through the leak point.
In house water testing may suggest you have a leak as raised bacteria levels will likely be detected. It is important to ensure you have procedures in place to monitor and control the risks of Legionella bacteria. Furthermore if the leak is significant and depending on the location of the tank there may be water damage to nearby structures and equipment. This can happen relatively quickly if the bund is in poor condition or if there is no bund present. Regular visual inspections will help you to spot problems early and enable low-cost repairs. We offer a full bund lining and repair service to ensure you storage tank system operates at optimal performance and is fully compliant.
Our engineers can also service associated pipework and our manufacturing facility enables us to provide bespoke solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our full tank reline service provides a complete refurbishment at a much lower cost than full tank replacement. We also provide deep cleaning & disinfection, joint and support repairs, risk assessments and water usage management.
