If you aren’t sure why you should choose water tank relining over a replacement water tank, read this article because the wrong choice could have you needlessly spending money. We at COVAC have written this article to save you unnecessary costs and tell you why you should choose water tank relining instead of replacement. 

A new lining is more cost-effective

First and foremost, purchasing a replacement water tank can be incredibly expensive and have various hidden costs involved. The water tank and the cost of a replacement water tank can add up quite quickly. But, with water tank relining, there are no hidden costs, and with competitive prices, relining can present a great cost alternative to full replacement. This is a far less expensive method that will have your structure up and running in your facility quickly.

Tank relining is a quicker process than a replacement

Purchasing a replacement water tank is not only very costly financially, but it is also a much longer process to complete compared to water tank relining and refurbishment. The process of installing a replacement water tank can take a matter of weeks, whereas a simple water tank relining and repair can be carried out within the same day. 

Choosing relining will provide you with a much better turnaround and will cause less disruption to your business operations compared to replacing your water retaining structure. So, if you need a quick and effective fix, a tank reline or refurbishment will be the better option.

Long term solution is provided for your current tank

When corrosion or damage occurs due to lack of water tank maintenance, a long-term solution is preferable. Water tank relining and refurbishment, as well as regular water tank maintenance, can provide a long-term fix for your water storage solution than a replacement would. Here at COVAC, we offer a guarantee of 10 years on our water tank lining, but manufacturers of new water tanks only tend to offer a one-year warranty for their tank. From this perspective, water tank relining will provide a far better long-term solution. 

Relined tanks are more simple to maintain

Another reason to choose relining over tank replacement is because the water tank maintenance is far easier with a fresh and smooth surface as opposed to a rusted and harsh one. Relining offers a ceramic-like finish, which will reduce the time you spend on cleaning and water tank maintenance.

Relining complies with the current regulations

Current regulations such as WRAS and DWI have specific standards that a relined tank will adhere to that a replacement tank may not. These regulations approve or deny your tank for the purpose of storing potable water, as the relined coating will comply with the regulations.
