What are the advantages of water tank relining?
There are numerous major benefits that can be achieved by relining your sites cold water storage tanks utilising our flexible polyurethane coating ES 988 DWPU they include:
Cost effective alternative to full water tank replacement works
Fast curing times
How are water tanks relined?
Every tank relining project is unique, often the most appropriate relining process is dependent on the structures size, how its constructed, the water tanks internal condition and what substrate our operatives would be preparing and applying our coating to i.e. if the water tank is concrete, galvanised steel, or glass reinforced plastic (GRP)
Preparation is essential
Regardless of what material a cold water storage tank is constructed from the internal surfaces of all structures must be extensively prepared before our coating is applied. This process includes the removal of all loose material and contaminants using manual hand tools or utilising shot blasting equipment, once this process is completed the internal joints of the structure are strengthened to increase the water tanks structural integrity.
Application of ES 988 DWPU Solvent free polyurethane coating
Once the structures internal surfaces have been extensively prepared, all joints are initially stripe coated prior to applying the first coating of ES 988 DWPU (grey) across all internal surfaces the coating is then left to cure before then finally applying the second coating of ES 988 DWPU (blue) which is then left to cure. Finally, the structure is thoroughly inspected prior to being clean & disinfected in line with ACoP L8 guidelines before being filled and placed back online.
Risk Factors & Signs of Tank Damage
Liquid 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 your water 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 water tank reline and water tank repair service provides a long-term solution at a much lower cost than full water tank replacement. We also provide a water tank cleaning & disinfection service which can be carried out on an annual basis following on from carrying out a full tank reline.
