Keeping a cold water tank clean and disinfected is extremely important to keep a high level of water hygiene at all times. It protects the water tanks users which is vital, especially if the users are children, the elderly or vulnerable people with pre-existing medical conditions.

Is Your Water Tank Compliant?

All cold water storage tanks are required to be internally and externally inspected annually at an absolute minimum to ensure compliance with ACoP L8.

Legionella control engineers or trained in house staff must assess the general condition of cold water storage tanks to ensure they have an adequate turnover of water and no biofilm is present on the water’s surface.

They must also check that there is no build up of sediment on the base of the water tank which has the potential to harbour harmful bacteria such as Legionella.

Had a cold water tank in the loft full of dust, wasp and flies. Tanks were cleaned to a very good standard, considering the awkwardness of the job. Very happy with the service

We were carrying out plumbing works on a site in London where we discovered a badly leaking GRP water tank, the Echo Square Services team attended site as quickly as possible to repair the leak and reline the tank. We will definitely contact them next time we are faced with a similar issue - would highly recommend.

We had a heavily leaking metal water tank above our office which was leaking through our ceiling, Echo Square Services repaired the leak and relined the tank just two days after we made the enquiry!

Arrived very quickly when the crisis developed in the 100-year-old water tanks in this Grade 1 listed building; did what looks a highly professional job (re-lining two hard to get at tanks in the roof) all in one day - which involved working really late - and were careful to make no mess and cause no damage. So far, it looks a great job at a reasonable cost.

The team was very helpful, polite and knowledgeable. Glad to speak to people who know what they're doing. Won't hesitate to use them again in the future

Having used other companies in the past I can wholeheartedly say that our dealings with Nationwide Tank Relining have been a breath of fresh air. We have had tanks relined, water hygiene assessments and floor coatings. All work was carried out in a timely manner and the quality of work has each and every time been exemplary. My bosses are thrilled with my decision to switch to Nationwide Tank Relining and a tank that was relined 10 years ago by them still looks good as new internally, and the money we've saved from choosing the right supplier has proven to be a very smart business move. Highly recommended!
