Repairing and Relining Aging or Leaking Concrete Water Tanks

Concrete storage tanks are widely used for the storage of water in many applications including drinking water, agricultural irrigation water, fire suppression, agricultural watering for plants and livestock, food preparation, chemical manufacturing, stormwater detention, and storage. Other water tank materials in use include plastics, fiberglass, and steel. Concrete storage tanks offer cost-effective long-term water storage in both regular and eco-sensitive locations. Concrete is exceptionally durable and when water is stored in a concrete tank, it remains clear and free of algae, does not emit order nor alter its taste. However, water tanks naturally age over time and eventually, leaks can happen. Then, it is time to secure expert tank leak repair services. Read more »

Fiberglass Repairs Provide an Alternative to Costly Steel Replacement and Repairs

A revolution is coming in the world of infrastructure installation, repairs, and maintenance, according to Michael Legault of CompositesWorld. It’s being driven largely by the advent of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) and the repairs that material makes possible. FRP repairs provide a cost-effective and productive way to heal damaged infrastructure, thus avoiding the need for costly, time-consuming replacements. FRP tanks can also serve as an excellent alternative to steel and concrete in some applications. Read more »

Commercial Coatings and Linings Prevent Early Tank Degradation

Fluid storage tanks are a crucial part of any industry and are used to hold anything from water to organic waste. Unfortunately, these tanks are in a constant state of deterioration thanks to corrosion. Even “simple” materials such as water will naturally corrode a metal tank over time, which will lead to problems such as leaking tanks, collapsing tank walls, and cross-contamination if tanks are used for more than one purpose. Many of these problems are inevitable results of using any storage tank for a long period of time, but many of them can also be mitigated by commercial coatings and tank liners. You will still need to invest in a tank leak repair service, but the right coatings and liners can extend the life of your storage tanks greatly. Here are just a few things to consider when it comes to using commercial coatings in your storage tanks. Read more »
