WATER TANK WORKS
Supply, Repair, Improve
We have extensive experience in the management and delivery of water tank relining and refurbishment services across a variety of industries and on a varying scale. Our professional team is fully qualified in completing high standard projects for all types of tanks
GRP WATER TANKS
IS YOUR TANK LEAKING?
If your Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) water tank is leaking or if there is an issue in your Legionella Risk Assessment you may need a tank refurbishment or a tank replacement.
We have the knowledge and expertise to deliver either of these options.
We work with you to understand your requirements and any constraints. Following a survey and an assessment of the tank we provide you with our suggestions and recommendations. If the tank is structurally sound and easily accessible for maintenance, then a repair and refurbish is the sustainable option. Otherwise, if the tank is damaged, requires a change in capacity or needs relocating in the plant room then a new water tank installation may be the best way forward.
REPAIRS & RELINE
We have a robust and reliable tank repair and reline service based on 15 years experience. In many cases this is the favourable option. Our solution addresses issues such as deteriorating mastic, erosion, corrosion of internal steel fastenings and bacterial growth.
In the UK there are regulations for the coatings used for water tank refurbishment to ensure water tanks and lining don’t contaminate the contents of the tank. Any tank or coating material must be approved by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS). The product we use offers a flexible lining and coating for water tanks; it is a WRAS approved solvent-free polyurethane coating specifically designed for lining potable water tanks. It provides excellent protection against erosion and corrosion. We offer a 10 year guarantee on all our tank lining systems.
We can also use a spray applied Polyurea lining system. This lining system is touch dry in five seconds and can be applied to large areas very quickly. The lining system is WRAS approved and Regulation 31/DWI approved meaning that compliancy is assured. The Polyurea lining system has fantastic properties of elongation and flexibility with zero
SUPPLY & INSTALLATIONS
If a tank repair is not possible or feasible, or your preference is a water tank replacement we can also plan and deliver this solution. We supply and install tanks which are built from WRAS approved sectional GRP panels approved for potable water storage (GRP is a fibre reinforced polymer made up of fibres of glass. It makes for a very tough and durable material that can last for a long time). All tanks are manufactured to the highest standard in the UK.
To limit any downtime and to ensure continuity of water supply, we have a reliable way of providing temporary water systems. We can install a temporary mains bypass or a temporary tanked system ahead of the the tank replacement process or any tank remedial works to ensure a continuous water supply throughout the duration of the works.
From the the moment we start working with you we are dedicated to the accurate assessment and planning and delivery of the project. We have a very efficient turnaround and are accurate with the estimation of the length of project. Our planning and execution includes:
Phone calls with client to get a basic understanding of the requirements.
Site survey to carry out a full and thorough assessment of the plant.
In-depth proposal which includes one to two options with detailed specifications and estimated time of completion and firmed up pricing.
Issuing a GANT chart ahead of the project with detailed timings and daily activities.
Issuing comprehensive Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS) as well as certificates for all engineers involved in the project. Health and Safety is of the upmost importance to us so we ensure all certificates, training and accreditations are up to date.
Planning for waste removal and consideration of all factors for the specific site.
Full appraisal of the competed work by the project lead and the client to gain approval and sign off of the job.
A full completion report with photographic evidence submitted to the client once the work is signed off.
WHY A NEW COATING SYSTEM MAY BE THE BEST OPTION?
Unlike many companies in the industry Sci-Tech is proficient in both tank repairs and relines and tank installations. We know that the option to reline or replace depends on many factors including client preference, but we are here to advise on the best solution based on a myriad of factors.
During the survey we take everything into consideration before suggesting the best option.
A leaking GRP, steel or concrete water tank has started to leak
The internal gel coat has started to break down
A risk assessment has identified internal corrosion within the water tank
Corrosion will accelerate deterioration and the development of bacteria within the tank
The water tank is non-compliant and needs to be brought up to WRAS/ACOP L8 standards
WHAT COATING PRODUCT DO WE USE
We reline all of our clients tanks with a spray applied Polyurea lining system. This lining system is touch dry in five seconds and can be applied to large areas very quickly
The lining system is WRAS approved and Regulation 31/DWI approved meaning that compliancy is assured. The Polyurea lining system has fantastic properties of elongation and flexibility with zero risk of cracking or failure
REPLACING YOUR WATER TANK
There are some instances where a water tank replacement may be the only option. For example:
The water system is no longer suitable for the building, this could arise if a hospital has been converted into commercial or residential property for example
The tanks we supply are built from WRAS approved sectional GRP panels, and are all manufactured in Britain using the highest standards. We are experts in providing temporary water systems; we can install a temporary mains bypass or a temporary tanked system ahead of the the tank replacement process or any tank remedial works to ensures a continuous water supply throughout the duration of the works
