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.

There are many reasons why relining a water tank is a much more preferred option to replacing the water tank altogether. Here are some of the key reasons why it makes sense to reline rather than replace;

  1. Time: The tank relining procedure can be a much quicker process than replacing an old water tank. The work involved when deciding whether to reline or replace a water tank includes investigating the type of structure and its internal and external condition. Some structures can be fully refurbished and returned to service within 48 hours. Other structures can take up to two weeks. A complete replacement can take much longer and it is impossible to say how long this would be as each tank can be vastly different for many reasons including the size, structure and location in which the tank can be found within a building. 
  1. Money: Over half of our business is now Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) leaking tanks, therefore tank refurbishment is a very popular and much cheaper option. Clients often think that replacing the tank is the most sensible solution to avoid further leaks, however we have relined tanks as old at 16 years which means a replacement is not always necessary. It can be very expensive and time-consuming to remove an old tank and replace it with a new one, so why not look at saving money by relining the tank instead.
  1. Hassle: If a client’s water tank is corroded, often their first thought is to replace it completely with a Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), and in principle this idea can make complete sense, because it’s easy to automatically assume the tank is at the end of its life cycle because it is now corroded. However, quite often water tanks are installed when a building is first constructed and therefore removal can be very difficult (the tank may require cutting in to more manageable pieces). Manufacturers and contractors who do install new GRP water tanks only guarantee the works for 12 months. Over 50% of our business this year has been emergency leaking GRP tanks. Tank Reline Ltd offer a 10 year guarantee so you must ask yourself do you want to take on the worry and expense of replacement or would a reline with a 10 year guarantee be more hassle free? Relining your existing tank suddenly becomes a much more viable option.
  1. Environmental Impact: When large items such as water tanks are replaced it is important to consider the long term impact this will impose on the environment when they are disposed of. If we can work to repair water tanks to increase their life span and improve their functionality then surely this is a much better option for the world we live in.

We are highly trained specialists and will talk you through the options available to you to ensure you are 100% happy with the agreed work.
