Masonry water tanks are meant to store safely without any signs of leakage. The leakage of water or contaminants into tanks can have devastating consequences.
The average lifespan of a concrete water tank is 10 to 15 years, during which the internal concrete walls must resist constant hydro-static pressure of varying degrees, and may also come in contact with chlorine and other chemicals that soften their surface.
The areas of concern are: cold joints, failing water stops, penetrations, shrinkage cracks and voids that cause leakage.
This in turn helps the growth of algae and fungus, which leads to weakening of the structure. At this point, water tank waterproofing becomes necessary. To sustain structural integrity & keep water unpolluted and safe.
The best way to reduce the likelihood of problems is to select the best waterproofing system for a concrete tank
