Sprinkler tank refurbishment and repair is now one of Nationwide Water Solutions core lines of business. Over the last three years we have refurbished or repaired a vast amount of sprinkler tanks throughout the UK. Sprinkler storage can range from around 200,000 litres up to around 2 million litres. Our largest sprinkler tank refurbishment project to date is a 1.2 million project in Basildon.
Sprinkler Tank Lining & Epoxy Coating
Sprinkler tanks can be refurbished using two methods; the epoxy coating system and the flexible lining system. The flexible lining system is generally used in circumstances where sprinkler tanks have an existing faulty lining or epoxy coating is not a viable option.
The sprinkler tank epoxy coating system involves the draining and cleaning of the vessel, followed by fibreglass repairs to all leaking and badly corroded areas. The tanks internal surfaces are then cleaned and a three coat epoxy paint system is then applied to prevent any further corrosion.
The flexible lining system involves the draining and cleaning of the vessel, followed by the removal of one lower tank panel. A geomembrane protection layer is then applied to the sprinkler tanks base and walls to protect the lining. The lining is then positioned at the base of the tank; the lining walls are then hoisted into position and secured just below the sprinkler tanks lid. The lining material itself is used as a gasket for all sprinkler tank connections.
During the sprinkler repair or refurbishment procedure, a number of health and safety issues have to be addressed. All our engineers are Confined Space, Working at Height, Mobile Scaffold and First Aid Trained.
