Steps to Avoid Water Tank ReplacementPosted on November 15, 2011
When you are responsible for a water tank, it is prudent to do all you can to ensure its longevity and compliancy so that water tank replacement will not be necessary. Here at COVAC, we are committed to providing our customers with long term solutions that ensure water tanks remain in full working condition. If you are worried that your water tank may not be protected against the factors that cause deterioration and leaking, please read on as we take you through the necessary steps to avoid costly and time consuming replacement.
It is a common misconception that replacing older water tanks is the only solution to deterioration and leaking, but in fact we are finding that more and more of our business is repairing and relining newer water tanks, some of which are only a few months old. Replacement GRP water tanks, for instance, often only usually come with a 1 year guarantee (if any) and when problems develop after this time further cost and inconvenience is incurred having the problems rectified. Water tanks manufactured in steel concrete or GRP repaired and relined by our specialist teams are issued with a minimum 10 year guarantee which covers erosion, corrosion and leakage.
Ensuring your water tank is cleaned regularly and chlorinated appropriately forms only a part of ensuring a healthy environment for water within the tank; the process of providing hygienic water and avoiding water tank replacement begins with a high quality coating.
As the UK supplier and 3M approved applicator of 3M™ Scotchkote™ Urethane Coating 165PW, we provide a product and service unrivalled by our competitors. Since developing this innovative coating, our customers have seen fantastic results that have led to avoiding the costly replacement of their water tank whether it is manufactured in steel, concrete or GRP.
Once 3M™ Scotchkote™ Urethane Coating 165PW has been applied, cleaning and maintaining is much easier as it forms a smooth and highly durable finish ensuring a safe environment within the tank and promoting hygienic water for the years ahead.
Choosing COVAC to carry out a full assessment is the perfect step towards avoiding the costly replacement of your existing water tank. Our experience and expertise means we are able to provide you with accurate information as to the action you need to take; we will always repair and reline a water tank and offer a minimum 10 year guarantee as opposed to suggesting replacement water tank wherever possible.
