How do Healthy Water Tanks repair water tanks?
The first thing that needs to happen is a complete drain of the tank. Once the tank is empty we give the walls and floor a good scrub so we can see exactly what we are dealing with. A special cement plaster mixture is used to repair interior and exterior cracks, along with reinforcing mesh where applicable. Next we cement wash the tank and apply a water proof sealant, along with a lime lock coat to the tank exterior. After an appropriate curing time the tank is vacuumed and rinsed again, followed by the final step - a full rinse with a vinegar based solution to minimise any odour or effect on the fresh water. We then refill your reconditoned water tank with fresh water.
What will I do for water in the meantime?
If the water tank to be repaired is your sole source of water it’s important to note that whilst repairs take place you will be without the use of your water tank for approximately 7 days – weather dependent. During this time we will set you up with a temporary water supply that can be plumbed in, meaning you can operate your household as usual.
