First Aid Storage Tank Refurbishment

You've been trying to keep your existing storage tanks going by plugging holes with wood, steel, masking - anything to do the job. But it's just not working anymore.

What do you do now?

You can only plug gaps and holes in tanks for so long before the time comes when it needs a more permanent solution.

Perhaps you're being pressured by The Environment Agency or even your own management to do something, but the budget for a new tank is simply not there.

Being issued with a prohibition notice and timescale for fixing the problem is a nightmare that can lose you a lot of sleep.

What do you do? The first thing to do is to NOT PANIC!

Our tank lining systems will add up to 15 years of operational life to your tank, it costs 80% less than having a new tank installed, AND it can be done quickly.

It's a win-win-win.

Having your tank relined with our Glass Reinforced Plastics (GRP) systems will breath new life back into your old tank.

It not only saves you money (which we all like), but it will also save you time and hassle.

The 'Big Tank Guys' Factchecker

Why can Glass Reinforced Plastic refurbishment be better than getting a new tank?

Simple economics. Having your tank refurbished using Glass-Reinforced Plastic (GRP) can save you up to 80% of the cost of having a new tank installed! The operational life of your tank will be extended by up to 15 years. A Big Tank Guys refurbishment also comes with a warranty for up to 10 years, depending on how the tank’s contents.

As it’s an existing structure, there are no planning and regulatory hoops to jump through, either. Nice!

New tanks need new plumbing, disposal of your old tanks, and downtime while it’s out with old and in with the new - all of which have can hit your own bottom line and the service you're providing to your own customers.

What are the costs for Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) tank refurbishment?

Having a tank refurbished using Glass-Reinforced Plastic can cost as little as 20% of what it would be to have a new tank installed.

For how long will the tank be unusable?

Downtime is a lot less than if you were having a new tank installed.

It is a bit like ‘how long is a piece of string?’.

Every hour that your tank is out of action can be profit lost for your business. Keeping downtime to a minimum is a priority for you, so it’s a priority for us.

Once we know the size of your tank, we’ll be able to give you a clearer idea of the timescale.

However, to give you a rough idea, a 15m diameter x 5m high tank could be refurbished and ready to get back to work in as little as 4 days.

What’s the lifespan of a tank refurbished using Glass-Reinforced Plastic (GRP)?

This comes down to what the tank stores. For potable drinking water, you’re talking about an extra 15 years of life; if it’s for harsher industrial wastewaters, it’ll be nearer 10 years.
