|Water tanks are a huge industry
now and we have become specialists in repairing them. Most of these tanks are made
from l.l.d.p.e or linear low density polyethylene.
This is a difficult plastic to repair as it isn't glue able and has to be welded with a
different density of welding rod, as it can't be welded with itself contrary to most
other weldable plastics.
We also have a confined space entry permit to enter tanks and weld from the inside, as
this is really the only way to do effective repairs.
An example of a tank repair is when a forklift operator, put one of the forks through a
tank and 40,000 litres of water leaked out.
This tank not only would have had to be removed and replaced, but also disposed of at
great cost to the owners.
For a fraction of these costs it was repaired successfully and withstands 40 tons of
pressure when it is full.
We also do many repairs to slim line water tanks that leak from the window areas also
from the inside.
