Echo Square Services Ltd recently carried out the full water tank replacement of a GRP cold water storage tank which had failed in a gym in Epsom.
As you can see from the video below, a water tank panel at the rear of the tank had completely given way causing a major, unrepairable leak.
Fortunately, the water tank was located in an isolated plant room at the rear of the gym, so no significant additional damage was caused.
The failed water tank was initially completely drained, and the gyms services were placed on to a mains water bypass while the tank was kept offline.
We proposed that a slightly smaller cold water storage tank should be installed as this would ensure there was a more efficient turnover of water to avoid any possible stagnation issues while also enabling easier access around the water tank for future maintenance works.
Upon completion of the water tank replacement, we also reconfigured the mains water bypass to ensure it could be utilised when required for future water tank cleaning and maintenance works.
All works were carried out in compliance with ACOP L8 guidelines utilising WRAS approved components throughout the project as required.
