3 Things You MUST DO Before Relining a Fiberglass Tank

3 Things you must do before relining a fiberglass tank


Here are three things you MUST do before relining a fiberglass tank:


1. Remove all residual holding material from the tank.


Chlorine, Acid, Sodium Hypochlorite, and other industrial chemicals are potent corrosive materials and will degrade the liner if it is present during the relining process. To remove residual holding material from the tank, transition the holding material to another tank, flush the tank with fresh water, and then allow the tank to aerate by opening the manways.


2. Inspect the tank for any damage.


It is important to identify and repair any damage to the tank before relining. Otherwise, the damage will only be exacerbated by the relining process. Our technicians are experts in identifying and repairing damage to fiberglass tanks. Check out our blog articles "Preparing for a Fiberglass Tank Repair" and a thoroughly detailed inspection plan, "How To Inspect A Fiberglass Tank."


3. Prepare the surface of the tank.


Before relining the FRP tank, the surface of the tank must be sanded smoothly to ensure proper adhesion of the liner. Once the surface is prepared, our technicians will apply a primer to facilitate adhesion further. When performing a tank reline, it's important to grind down the surface cracks to expose how deep the cracks penetrated.


Conclusion:

Our process involves applying a high-quality liner to the interior of your tank, providing a long-lasting solution to common issues such as corrosion, chemical attack, and leakage.
