The Benefits of GRP Water Tanks

Here at Precolor Tank Division, we specialise in offering our clients a range of storage tanks for liquids. Today we are going to focus our attention to some of the benefits of GRP water tanks. GRP stands for glass-reinforced plastic, which has many advantageous properties for use as a material for water storage tanks.

Corrosion Resistance

Whilst steel and aluminium water tanks may be more susceptible to corrosion, one of the main reasons for investing in a GRP tank is its resistance to corrosion. It is able to provide excellent insulation, so there is no need to paint or galvanize these types of tanks, with them already weather resistant and able to withstand extremes of hot and cold temperatures. As well as being beneficial to the outside, it is also the case for the inside of GRP tanks as they also provide corrosion resistance to chemicals, wastewater and sewage.

GRP Water Storage Covers: The Benefits

Many businesses use GRP water tanks to store water for when it is needed. Of course, the size of the water tanks will vary from company to company, from small and medium sized models which are constructed from one piece, without any joints or seals, to larger tanks which might be constructed from two or more sections. 

Not only is there a wide variety in the size and shape of tanks, but there are also many differences in how they are used. Some companies use purified water which is mixed into a solution or product, whereas other businesses need the water to cool machinery down during operation. Does your business use GRP water tanks for an aspect of your work?
