Reline Of Leaking Sectional GRP Tank
Upon arrival, our team of engineers were on hand to shut off supply and drain the tanks. Once inside, there was clear evidence of debonding in the mastic and delamination of the GRP surface, which poses a significant hygiene risk to the users, especially in a clinical environment.
Tank Reline were called in to investigate these leaking sectional tanks in a hospital in London. It was clear that a straightforward repair was not going to be possible due to the extensive dilapidation of the tank seals, so a full reline was recommended.
A stripe coat was applied to all high-risk areas within the tank, including all joints and bolt heads. Following this, two coatings of a WRAS-approved polyurethane were applied to all internal surfaces. Once the reline had properly cured, it was re-commissioned and placed back into service, back with our 10-year guarantee.
All contamination was removed, and the internal surfaces abraded to raise the profile. A specialist adhesive was then used to seal the mastic joints in order to prevent further leaks. Dehumidification equipment was then used to ensure the optimal curing conditions were achieved.

"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."
