Potable Water Tank Repair
Although the school’s potable water tanks were relatively new (only a few years), the existing bitumen coating had failed.
The tanks were difficult to access and were located within a very confined space. The work had to be completed during the school half-term break.
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 three working days with the tanks being restored to “as good as new” condition, extending their practical working life. This resulted in substantial cost savings for the client as the cost of replacing the tanks far outweighed the cost of relining them. This system is NSF Certified for fresh drinking water applications.
