The permanent waterproofing with the use of membranes by AQUASTAR ABEE is a safe and tested method. It is a modern solution that addresses efficiently issues of leakage and non-hygienic water storage of existing tanks, in an environmentally friendly and cost effective way.
By lining all interior surfaces of a tank with this special membrane, the tank is waterproofed safely and permanently.
AQUASTAR ABEE has installed this membrane system by commission from several Municipalities, Municipal Water Companies and Regional governments in existing tanks being used for Water Supply, Irrigation and Fire Protection. The wide reception proves that this method is effective and that the work is being performed to a high standard.
This method can be applied to:
- Roofed tanks made of concrete, masonry or stonework.
- Open-top rain-tanks made of concrete, masonry or stonework.
- Tanks made of metal, of any shape and size.
- Reservoirs and sumps.
Waterproofing by membranes method has several advantages some which are listed below:
- Due to the high quality of the materials, the construction details and the good craftsmanship, the long term hygienic protection of the tank content is assured.
- The method consists of lining the whole of the containing area and not just local remedial works. Thus any future leakages from any part of the tank are being prevented
- Lining of the tanks is executed on site, therefore following all dimensions and technical details, like beams and columns, of the waterproofed area.
- Use of the membranes renders a permanent and long lasting result with no need for further maintenance other than cleaning.
- The load bearing part of the tank does not come into contact with the content of it, preventing any further corrosion and prolonging the service life of the tank itself.
- A truly cost saving waterproofing option, as there is no need for periodical re-application, in contrast with epoxy-sealers and paints.
- Quick installation. From installation to re-commissioning in just a few days as no drying/curing time required.
