Do you own or manage premises with a hot and cold water system?

And whilst you could do it yourself, if you want your findings to be reliable, you need:

You’ll be surprised at the horrors we discover in some cold-water storage tanks.

You see, because the mains supplies your cold water, in time your tank will inevitably accumulate debris, sludge and silt. It makes the water look dirty.

What’s more, it’s not uncommon to discover contamination from bird and pigeon poo or even dead, decomposing rodents floating about. It doesn’t bear thinking about right?

Would you drink this water?

Is your cold-water storage tank leaking, corroding or posing an increased legionella risk?

Whatever your situation, our expert team of professional fitters can provide you with tank re-lining of your water storage facilities to ensure they are hygienic, fit for purpose and designed to minimise the risk of  legionella growth.

Just because your tank is corroded or leaking, it doesn’t automatically mean a replacement is required.

In a number of cases, professional repair and re-lining work is a cost-effective alternative that also avoids the need to dispose of your existing tank.  For example:

re-lining

  • Extremely Fast Curing Times, even at low temperatures

  • High levels of impact and chemical resistance.
  • Reduced downtime of storage tanks and process vessels – refill after minimum of 6hrs after completion.
  • Long life performance with minimal maintenance
  • Easy clean, ceramic tile-like finish

In addition to re-lining your cold water storage tank, we can also ensure it complies with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 by:

  • Installing insulation to the tank and associated pipework
  • Installing a new lid where required
  • Installing an insect screen to the warning and overflow pipework
  • Re-plumbing to ensure good water flow through the tank

I am very pleased with the work and the services of your company.
