Tank Reline completed a project for us recently. They were very professional, organised and most importantly in today’s climate very competitively priced. From start to finish the project ran perfectly and they always recommend relining tanks over a full replacement, I would use Tank Reline every time. Also we and our client were very impressed with the photographic reports produced and thought this was a good touch to a great job.

Steps Taken When Relining a Water Tank

We often tell clients that relining a water tank is the simplest most cost-effective way of repairing your water tank. This is because a complete replacement can be time consuming and very costly. When Tank Reline conduct a reline we also complete a full clean and chlorination using specialist cleaning and jetting equipment. By using this specific health and safety equipment, we can safely, quickly and effectively clean tanks, minimising downtime, whilst ensuring the safety of all involved. All of our tank relines are guaranteed, which provides clients with absolute peace of mind.

Here are the 5 steps to follow when relining a water tank;

First step:

Structure: The most important factor when relining a water tank is firstly to assess the structural integrity which requires a site inspection before works commence. Tank Reline has a breadth of experience working with a variety of structural tanks of all sizes, therefore are well equipped to take on any job., of any size.

Second step:

Preparation: Preparation is the crucial element to all tank reline jobs. If the preparation is completed incorrectly or inadequately then it is highly likely the tank reline will not work. Tank Reline has been drafted in on a number of occasions to resolve a variety of issues where inexperienced contractors have failed to undertake the works correctly.

Third step:

Application Process: It is vitally important to follow the step-by-step application requirements when relining a water tank. For example, the usual procedure is; stripe coat of all joints and shapes edges – first full coat (in line with the manufacturers guidance) – second coat – final coat.

Fourth step:

Quality: Upon completion of the tank reline, it is necessary to conduct quality checks to ensure film thickness has been achieved to the specification required. On many occasions Tank Reline has been contracted to re-do a job where a previous, inexperienced contractor has failed to ensure the film thickness and single coat application are correct. This double error will always cause a breakdown in the tank relining process and the job will more than likely need re-doing.

 Fifth step:

Guarantee: Various contractors will offer some sort of guarantee, so always ensure you fully understand the guarantee on offer and what it covers. Quite often, the guarantee provided includes unfair conditions and exclusions, or worse, elements of the job are not covered once the issues are raised and disputed.

Tank Reline launched its Gold Package warranty in 2017, which includes an annual site visit by a Tank Reline specialist engineer to inspect the water tank reline and report back to the client with findings. This means, Tank Reline works closely with the client throughout the guarantee period. The majority of our competitors simply offer a promise on a piece of paper, frequently filled with conditions and exclusions which are never accountable if there is a dispute. This is where Tank Reline pride themselves on their customer service and hope this service sets them apart from their competitors.
