5 Things you Should Know about GRP Water Tanks

GRP Water Tanks

If you are reading this, then it is quite likely that you are looking for water storage solutions for your property or business. If so, perhaps you have seen GRP water tanks, like the type that we manufacture at Precolor Tank Division. Of course, despite GRP being a very widely used and versatile material, not everyone is familiar with what this material is, or why it is such a good choice for liquid storage units. In this article, we have 5 important things you should know if you are looking for GRP water storage tanks.

1) The name means that they are made from glass reinforced plastic.

If you don’t know what GRP means, it simply refers to glass reinforced plastic. This is a reinforced plastic material. It is created by using a fibre structure of glass, which is embedded in a plastic resin. The combination of the two materials creates an exceptional construction substance. The plastic base ensures that it is waterproof and resistant to UV light, as well as easy to form into any shape, whilst the glass fibre makes it long lasting and strong.

2) GRP tanks are durable, so they are good value for money.

At the end of the day, you don’t want to have to replace your tank.  GRP water storage tanks are designed to last for a long time. Of course, the number of years will depend on a number of factors, such as the conditions the tank is kept in or what is stored in it – the more corrosive the substance, the faster the tank will deteriorate. But in the right conditions, and with clean, cold water inside, you could expect the tank to last as much as 30 to 40 years.

3) They are available either as sectional or one-piece cold-water storage tanks.

Small to medium sizes can be formed in a single unit, with no joints or seams. But if you need something bigger, this manufacturing type is perfect for creating GRP sectional tanks.

4) They are easy to install.

Because they are so light whilst retaining strength, GRP water storage tanks are easy to install without needing specialist equipment or skills.

5) There are options available to suit all types of projects.

Whatever you need, there is a unit to suit your requirements. From small to large GRP tanks, single unit or sectional designs, we have the option for you. We can also provide a cover to keep the contents clean, as well as advise if you need to maintain a temperature, filter and process the water, or incorporate the unit into an existing system.
