When Tank Reline takes on a job to re-line a water tank, the work is guaranteed, therefore in the unlikely event the tank needs follow-up care, Tank Reline would be on hand. The majority of manufacturers of new water tanks in the UK can only offer a 12-month guarantee. Tank Reline is unaware at this time of any UK manufactures/installers that offer longer than 12 months warranty for new water tanks. Once the 12 months has passed, the client is left to manage any after-care themselves (ultimately the system is not covered under any warranty and the client is left with the problem).
2. Save Money
Replacing a water tank in its entirety can be a demanding job, which comes with huge expense. Opting to reline instead of replacing will save you money and provide you with a guarantee.
3. Save Time
A complete replacement tank is a very big job, and one that should not be undertaken lightly. By opting to reline the water tank instead of replacing you keep disruption to your business to an absolute minimum and you can expect the work to be completed in a much quicker turnaround.
4. Water safety
When Tank Reline undertake a re-line, a full on-site assessment will be completed using the latest technology on a PDA based system which is instantly reported back to our project team achieving a prompt response. This is because we want to ensure we have advised you on the best and most appropriate course of action. We also offer a range of services which run hand in hand with relining a tank. For example, Tank Reline offers a clean and disinfection/chlorination service upon completion of a reline which means the tanks are cleaned in accordance with the latest health and safety guidelines, giving our clients additional peace of mind and results in our client not needing to return to site to commission the system themselves. This is one thing most of our competitors do NOT offer (so please be aware of this when reviewing quotation proposals). Let us do all this for you, leaving you with your other water treatment services for your client instead.
5. Protect against corrosion
Unfortunately, the way in which potable steel water tanks are designed they can be susceptible to general wear and tear and corrosion. Although this is inevitable during the life cycle of a water tank, the exclusive coating Tank Reline use when relining tanks fights against this corrosion because of its high-build solvent free ingredients.

Here are the 5 steps to follow when relining a water tank;
Structure: The most important factor when relining a water tank is firstly to assess the structural integrity which requires a site inspection before works commence. Tank Reline has a breadth of experience working with a variety of structural tanks of all sizes, therefore are well equipped to take on any job., of any size.
Preparation: Preparation is the crucial element to all tank reline jobs. If the preparation is completed incorrectly or inadequately then it is highly likely the tank reline will not work. Tank Reline has been drafted in on a number of occasions to resolve a variety of issues where inexperienced contractors have failed to undertake the works correctly.
Application Process: It is vitally important to follow the step-by-step application requirements when relining a water tank. For example, the usual procedure is; stripe coat of all joints and shapes edges – first full coat (in line with the manufacturers guidance) – second coat – final coat.
Quality: Upon completion of the tank reline, it is necessary to conduct quality checks to ensure film thickness has been achieved to the specification required. On many occasions Tank Reline has been contracted to re-do a job where a previous, inexperienced contractor has failed to ensure the film thickness and single coat application are correct. This double error will always cause a breakdown in the tank relining process and the job will more than likely need re-doing.
Guarantee: Various contractors will offer some sort of guarantee, so always ensure you fully understand the guarantee on offer and what it covers. Quite often, the guarantee provided includes unfair conditions and exclusions, or worse, elements of the job are not covered once the issues are raised and disputed.
Tank Reline launched its Gold Package warranty in 2017, which includes an annual site visit by a Tank Reline specialist engineer to inspect the water tank reline and report back to the client with findings. This means, Tank Reline works closely with the client throughout the guarantee period. The majority of our competitors simply offer a promise on a piece of paper, frequently filled with conditions and exclusions which are never accountable if there is a dispute. This is where Tank Reline pride themselves on their customer service and hope this service sets them apart from their competitors.

The answer is that the the upfront advantage of having a hot water tank over having a tankless option is the price tag, which can sometimes be as much as 75% less expensive. The downside is the utilities are considerably different.
It depends on the cost of the utilities in your area, but often times it’s about 1/3 of the cost of utilities going from a gas tank to a gas tankless. If you’re planning on moving in the next few years, I would say probably just put a tank in because you’re not going to recoup your money. In order to actually make a profit you’ll need to use it for a period of, let’s say ten years at least. However, the life span of tankless can be as long as 20 years, or even 25 depending on the water in your area.
Something else that we get asked about quite often is putting in an electric tankless to replace their electric hot water tank. Electric tankless versus gas tankless is not a very good option in any way, shape or form. They’re expensive and they are maybe10% more efficient than an electric hot water tank, so totally not worth it.
On the comfort side of things, there’s a difference between how the two operate. A tank can almost run an unlimited number of faucets, so let’s say you have four bathrooms in the house and two kitchens. You can turn on everything in the house BUT it will quickly drain the tank down. You could probably run it for about ten minutes and the whole thing will be drained.The advantage of the tank is the fact that you have an unlimited amount of faucets that you can run simultaneously. The problem is that they run out quite quickly.
The tankless option has the opposite problem. It can run a limited number of faucets, sometimes as low as two and as high as six or seven, again depending on the area of the country that you’re in. If you’re in the southern United States or somewhere where the ground water is warmer you’re going to get more hot water that comes out of your tap because the starting temperature is higher.
If you’re in the northern states, you’re going to have less output out of it because the starting temperature of the water is colder. Everything in general is going towards tankless water heaters, as a general rule, so probably in 10, 20 years they’re going to be the dominant option.

Apart from the initial cost of purchasing building materials, there is a lot to consider before deciding on a concrete rainwater tank—how big a property is, how the stored rainwater will be used and what other fixtures are needed (according to the owner’s needs) are the most common of them.
The good and bad of concrete rainwater tanks
The main draw of a concrete tank is its durability and its holding capacity, which stores a minimum 3,800 litres and a maximum 11,500 litres (for underground tanks) of rainwater. As the rainwater is stored underground in concrete tanks, the water stays cold all year ’round and is protected from the elements due to the natural insulation the soil provides. The solid construction of concrete tanks means there are virtually no leaks and the stored water is safe from any contamination.
However, due to its rigidity, this means concrete could not contract or expand as easily in the freeze-thaw cycle of water compared to other tanks of different materials like stainless steel or plastic. This may cause structural damage to the concrete tank, which may result in leaking and additional costly repairs.
Furthermore, rainwater is naturally acidic; and when combined with minerals such as calcium and magnesium found in concrete, this produces slightly alkaline water, safe for human consumption. One drawback of the resultant hard water is that it may not be suitable for irrigation as the newly formed compounds in the water could form a film around plants which could affect how plants absorb light and water for their sustenance. To ensure the harvested rainwater is even safe for human consumption, further filtration and purification systems may be needed to work in conjunction with the conveyance system so the water is free from any physical or biological contaminants, which could mean further investment on the owner’s end.
