Water Tank Repair CompanyPosted on May 4, 2011
Have you noticed that the condition of your water tank has begun to gradually worsen over time? If so, it’s important to get it repaired sooner rather than later else you could find yourself faced with a costly reparation later down the line. As industry leaders in damage prevention, maintenance and water tank repair, we at COVAC are able to offer the swift and professional service you need when you tank begins to deteriorate.
Here, we’ll explore what we can offer for you and how we’ve managed to successfully restore and maintain water tanks in the past. As the only supplier and approved applicator for 3M Scotchkote Urethane Coating 165PW in the UK, we’re the number one team for providing lasting and practical solutions for issues such as erosion and corrosion of structures which hold water. We are able to use our knowledge and expertise to implement the very best technology, to create the most durable and resilient tanks.
Let’s take a look at how we’ve managed to use such services to help others. In 1997, we were called to a hospital in the North West to look at a steel portable water storage tank. We first carried out a thorough risk assessment, to comply with health and safety standards, and to help us assess the full scale of the tank’s condition.
Within our assessment, we found that the tank had been coated with a non-approved Bitumen coating, which if left untreated, could lead to bacterial growth on the internal surfaces. This could ultimately result in unhygienic water. We also found that the joints had begun to leak into the ward below, presenting a major issue.
To restore the tank, we began by fully preparing the structure with dry abrasive blasting. We also removed a steel panel, which was later replaced with a low level hatch as a far safer alternative, and made future cleaning and maintenance much easier.
We then applied the Scothkote 165PW coating with our hot applied, plural component spray equipment, to protect it for the future, and prevent any further leaks. Following the work which we carried out, the tank was left fully protected against future damage, and the Site Engineer was able to access the tank safely and happily.
