Everyone wants to keep their water tanks safe. However, this is often easier said than done. Sometimes, you need specialist assistance when something goes wrong. We can supply this to you. Our services include concrete tank lining and various others.
When it comes to water tanks, concrete is a fantastic substance. It can keep water cool all year and is flexible enough for fashioning custom sized installations. Plastic and metal heat up easily when exposed to the sun so these tanks need additional protection.
Although it offers some advantages, it’s integral to understand that concrete is porous. Plastic and metal are not. Since this is the case, concrete can act as a breeding ground for E. coli, algae, and similar microbial forms. As such, we recommend that you disinfect and clean tanks frequently.
What you need to do
The first thing you need to do is turn the water supply off and drain the tank. Yours might be a catchment-type system. If it is, you’ll have to cleanse the outer sections where rainwater touches it. Once you’re done with that, you can start working on the inside. It is a good idea to scrub the surfaces to ensure you get rid of all deposits and bacteria.
Our recommendation is to clean your tank once every two years at minimum. We also suggest that you test the water. It may taste strange or your family might be suffering from gastrointestinal distress. If you find yourself in these situations, don’t assume that clean looking water is actually clean. Many microbial complications are invisible. By submitting your water for testing, you can find out whether it is safe to drink.
At Nationwide Water Solutions, our linings allow you to enlarge the lifespan of your concrete tank indefinitely. They stop the material from breaking down and prevent your water from becoming contaminated. The installation process is a hasty one. This means that we won’t disrupt your regular operations too much.
