Replacement Water Tanks – Lid Supports
In November 2013 the Department of Health issued an Estates and Facilities Alert (Ref: EFA/2013/004) regarding the use of uncapped PVC-U support pipes within cold water tanks. The document stated that the use of said supports is likely to lead to stagnation and harbouring of harmful micro-organisms. To remedy the problem an ‘Action’ instruction was given to replace with solid structures.
As a result of this instruction Dewey Waters have designed and obtained WRAS approval for a replacement roof post system that can be used in sectional tanks. The design is such that not only can it be used on Dewey Waters tanks but also on other similar style GRP tanks.
