Damaged GRP Water Tank Replacement

As a first priority, a temporary bypass was installed on the cold water storage tank to maintain water supply whilst the replacement procedures were carried out. All new pipework went through a specialist cleaning and disinfection system to guarantee the site clean potable water. Following this stage of the project, the team could commence dismantling the old water storage tank.

Tank Reline were called into action following the report of a leaking potable water tank, feeding supply to a campsite up north in Scotland. After a survey from a member of our experienced engineering team, the conditions were far from meeting contemporary compliance legislation. In addition to the leak, damaged tank panels were observed as a clear risk factor for recommissioning the tank at a later date. Therefore, a full turnkey replacement was deemed as the appropriate solution.  

To finalize the replacement and provide the most effective long-term solution, connected pipework was modified to better suit the new system and aid performance. As standard, the new GRP water tank was clean, disinfected and recommissioned into use. This went alongside the removal of the temporary bypass. 

Prior to it's dismantling, the old tank was isolated and drained. Once the area was clear, the existing base was assessed and levelling steels were installed to provide a solid foundation for the new GRP tank. This new sectional GRP cold water storage tank (6m x 2m x 2m) included new screened connections, encapsulated insulation, an access manway, equilibrium drop arm float valve, internal and external ladders and a raised chamber

"We were delighted with Tank Relines approach to the project. Their engineers were excellent in their responsiveness and knowledge of leak repairs. I'd have full confidence using them again."
