How Water Tank Lining Prevents Corrosion

Posted on March 9, 2012

Clean and clear water is something we take for granted, but if your water tank is showing signs of wear and tear, this could be having an adverse effect on the quality of your water. Metal and steel water tanks are particularly vulnerable to corrosion, which is why water tank lining from a professional firm is so important to maintain the condition of your water tank. COVAC are the only company in the UK who are approved to supply and apply 3M™ Scotchkote™ Urethane Coating 165PW – the most effective way to combat water tank corrosion. When you are looking for a long-term solution to corrosion within your water tank, look no further than the perfect partnership of our expertise and this quality product.

Why Does Corrosion Occur?

If you have a metal or steel water tank, corrosion could become a real problem. On closer inspection, it may become clear that the coating initially applied to the inside of your tank offered insufficient protection, or has worn away over time. The internal surfaces of water tanks are often coated with unapproved paints like bitumen which have potentially carcinogenic properties. As well as failing to provide the protection from corrosion that you require, these coatings may no longer be Water Industry Council, Water Regulations Advisory Scheme or Drinking Water Inspectorate approved for drinking water storage.

Corrosion could in turn lead to bacterial growth which could prove harmful within your water supply, and water tank lining from COVAC is the most effective way to combat these problems of corrosion when the interior of your tank has deteriorated.
