UNDERSTANDING WATER LOSSES IN STORAGE TANKS

UNDERSTANDING WATER LOSSES IN STORAGE TANKS
12/06/2017

Water hygiene is something that needs to be taken with the upmost seriousness. If contaminated, the bacteria or contaminants within your supply could lead to a myriad of health risks for everyone who is present inside the premises. Experienced in numerous forms of repairs, refurbishments and tests, we are the company to call if you are worried about the condition of your watertanks.

Water loss from your tanks is detrimental and can lead to some severe consequences. As you might expect, there are maintenance strategies to put in place, but since different tank types require unique solutions, one method may not necessarily work well in every instance. As such, it’s vital that you know of the characteristics of each tank. That way the appropriate safeguards can be put into play when a problem does manifest.

Steel watertanks have excellent structural strength and a fair degree of resilience, but are vulnerable to spot pitting and surface corrosion. Concrete tanks are also designed with high structural strength in mind, but they can spall and crack. Fibreglass models may not be susceptible to such concerns for the most part, however, they tend to suffer from damaged corrosion coats. This affects the thin layers that hold the liquid.

Seemingly minor complications like a screwdriver scratch within a topside pump or fibreglass design, or an agitator component falling inside a tank that’s undergoing maintenance, can harm the thin corrosion coat on a watertank. This shall eventually result in the liquid reaching the substrate and causing wear.

Contamination shall be a major concern should owners neglect to keep up on maintenance requirements of the vents on their tanks. The primary risk here is that your water line, which pumps water into the distribution network, can introduce contaminations into your apparatus.

At Nationwide Water Solutions we have worked with many kinds of watertanks over the years, including the likes of fibreglass, steel, and concrete designs. Whenever there is an issue, we shall first examine it and from this, determine the best course of action to take. If we can be of any assistance to you, please let us know.
