Water Tank Sandblasting and Painting - FAQs

We service a wide range of water tanks, including:

  • Municipal water towers and tanks
  • Industrial water storage tanks
  • Commercial water storage tanks
  • Potable water tanks
  • Fire suppression water tanks
  • Wastewater tanks

Repainting schedules depend on factors like tank usage, environmental conditions, and coating type. Signs indicating the need for repainting include flaking, rust, and corrosion.

Key safety protocols include confined space entry, ventilation, and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Our adherence to industry standards ensures safe practices.

For water storage tanks we use one of the best coatings: epoxy or polyurethane coatings. Each type has unique benefits:

  • Epoxy Coatings: Known for excellent adhesion and corrosion resistance, making them ideal for harsh environments.
  • Polyurethane Coatings: Provide superior UV resistance and flexibility, suitable for exterior applications.

We adhere to all relevant industry standards and regulations, including those set by SSPC (Society for Protective Coatings) and NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers). Our team is trained to comply with these standards, and we conduct regular audits to ensure ongoing compliance. 

The lifespan of a newly coated water tank depends on the type of coating used, environmental conditions, and maintenance practices. High-quality coatings, such as epoxy or polyurethane, can last between 15 to 20 years with proper maintenance. Regular inspections and touch-ups can further extend the lifespan of the coating.

We work closely with our clients to develop a project schedule that minimizes disruption to their operations. This may include working during off-peak hours, weekends, or holidays. Our team is experienced in coordinating with facility managers to ensure smooth and efficient project execution with minimal impact on your daily activities.

Weather conditions can significantly impact the blasting and painting process. Extreme temperatures, humidity, and rain can affect the adhesion and curing of coatings. We monitor weather conditions closely and schedule work during optimal weather to ensure the highest quality results. In some cases, temporary enclosures or climate control measures may be used to mitigate weather-related challenges.
