University Water Tank
Water Tank At A University


In this case study, our Engineers were tasked with a cold water storage tank replacement, located in the plantroom of an established University. This old tank was split in to two compartments by an internal wall and the tank compartments were corroding internally. It was proposed that this water tank should be replaced with a new sectional GRP CWST to maintain compliance and that's exactly what we did!

Dismantled Water Tank


Old University Water Tank 

The first task of the project involved dismantling the existing water tank, measuring 3m x 4m x 1.5m (split into 3m x 2m x 1.5m). To execute this, the university storage tank was isolated, drained and all panels were removed. Like all of our water tank replacement projects, these tank components were disposed of in an environmentally sustainable manner. 


The Tank Replacement Process

Following the dismantling of the old cold water storage tank, we began the new tank building process. To execute this, we utilised a series of GRP tank panels and carried out necessary pipework modifications to suit the new system. The size of this new tank was assessed by our team during a previous survey, to best meet the water supply demands for the facility.

University Water Tank Installation

After a timely turnaround, the new water tank was built. To ensure the result went beyond client expectation, we included raised chambers, Keraflo KB type float valves, top access hatches, internal and external ladders, low- and high-level switches and screened connections.


The Story After

As part of our turnkey tank replacement package, our team refilled the new GRP water tank, checked for any potential leaks, performed a specialist disinfection and eventually recommissioned it into service. Our client was left extremely satisfied with the outcome of the project, later receiving a highly detailed completion report detailing all stages of the project.
