Mystery Tank Leak Solved with Allied Pumps Water Tank Liner

Your tank has sprung a leak – again, and you are now faced with wasting the water you were trying to save in order to fix it.

Why do water tanks leak?

There are any number of reasons why water tanks leak, including:

  • It’s an old tank which is showing its age
  • The harsh Australian climate is taking its toll on the fabric of the tank causing rust to come through
  • It’s a concrete tank and ground movement has occurred

Replacing a water storage tank is not a cheap exercise, but how many times do you repair the damaged tank before the economics outweigh the repair or replace the tank equation? Thankfully there is a third option to consider.

Why patch when you can permanently stop leaks – without replacing the tank!

It sounds too good to be true. Fix the leaking tank problem without the expense of removing the old tank and putting in a new one! How is that possible?

Well to be fair, not EVERY tank can be fixed, but that’s usually because the tank shell is no longer structurally sound and cannot hold its intended capacity. But those instances are rare.

What is true, is that you can fix a leaky water tank by having an existing steel tank liner replaced, or your leaky / cracked concrete tank repaired using the Allied Pumps INSITU Tank Liner.
