Potable Water Tank Repair
The hotel’s potable water tanks were approximately 90 years old and were in an extremely rusty condition. The client was looking for a coating system which could restore the tanks to “as good as new” condition, as the cost of replacing the tanks far outweighed the cost of relining them.
The tanks were extremely rusty and deeply pitted. Working in very cold conditions and within a strict time-frame added to the difficulty of this project.
Manual preparation was selected as the surface preparation method. One primer coat of solvent-free, wet & rust tolerant Epo-chem™ RS 500P was applied first. This was followed by two topcoats of solvent-free, wet tolerant Epo-chem™ RA 500M.
The work was completed within 3 working days. Substantial cost savings were achieved by choosing to reline the tanks as opposed to purchasing new tanks. This system is NSF Certified for fresh drinking water applications.
