Signs indicating the need to replace your old water tank

Water tanks are being used for various purposes nowadays, and their usage is particularly high in countries facing water scarcity issues. These tanks have gained popularity worldwide due to their versatility.

Water tanks can be found in homes, industries, workplaces, cafes, and restaurants. Polyethylene water tank models are quite popular because they are lightweight, economical, and have food-grade materials. They are also known for their international food safety standards compliance, making them bestsellers.

In general, these tanks serve the purpose of storing, protecting, transporting, and dispensing contents, be it food or chemicals, when needed. After production, these tanks undergo durability tests according to established standards, and a two-year warranty is provided against manufacturing defects. Most damage cause to tanks are often occurs due to their usage, so it's important to handle your tank with care. Regular cleaning and storing it in a covered area are recommended.

Does the Material Used Affect Tank Durability?

Indeed, the material used for making the tank affects its durability. Tanks are produced using three main materials: polyethylene, polyester, and stainless steel. All three materials are insulating and UV-stabilized, preventing harmful UV rays from entering the tank.

Manufacturing methods also play a role in tank durability. Polyethylene tanks are made as monoblocks, which means they are seamless and rivetless, ensuring their durability. In contrast, polyester and stainless steel tanks are constructed by assembling parts created from raw materials. Damage to your tank due to usage can often be repaired at our manufacturing facilities.

Examine the Scratches on Your Tank's Surface

External environmental conditions are the most significant factor affecting the durability of your tank. Tanks are manufactured to be highly durable, but scratches that accumulate over time can potentially pierce the tank. Often, external factors like falling objects or other impacts are responsible for these scratches. Therefore, it's essential to examine the scratches on your tank's surface, identify the cause, and address it.

Don't Overlook Wear and Tear

Wear and tear can occur over many years, possibly due to dust abrasion or intentional external damage. Ensuring the tank's longevity is vital, so avoid using highly abrasive chemicals during cleaning. Moreover, apply minimal pressure when cleaning with hard objects. Besides these precautions, with proper care, your tank can serve you for many years in a healthy condition.

Check for Leaks

In large tonnage tanks, leaks often go unnoticed. It's recommended to perform leak checks at least once a week. Leaks may occur in unexpected areas of the tank. If you identify a leaking spot, repairs can be carried out at our manufacturing facilities.

Are There Cracks at the Curvature Points?

Tank designs are generally not highly curved, as the primary focus is on structural integrity. Even with custom designs, our engineers assess whether the design poses any engineering challenges. Once it's confirmed that there are no issues, production begins.

Which Tank Is the Most Durable?

While finding the most durable tank can be challenging, stainless steel water tank models are often considered the most durable due to their material. These tanks have high operating temperatures, up to +80 degrees Celsius, which is close to the boiling point of water. Moreover, their material is hard and insulating, making them resistant to external damage.

If you notice wear and tear or a leak in your tank, you have two options: you can either bring your tank to our facilities for repair or replace it. However, after replacing your tank, regular maintenance and cleaning are crucial to prolong its lifespan.
