Underground Water Tank Leaks
Underground water tanks are becoming more popular in all sectors, but particularly in commercial premises. Tanks located underground are ideal for rainwater harvesting, important in drier climates and they also maximize land space. With underground tanks also used for sewerage waste, containment without leak is crucial. They are costlier to install and as such it is important that they are well maintained, reducing the potential for water leaks and floods. LeakDtech Dubai have innovative technological equipment that can scan the ground around the tank using damp-testing and thermal imaging equipment, precisely locating any leak or problem.
These scanned inspections can be used as a proactive approach rather than reactive, assisting in regular tank maintenance and identifying problems early before cost and damage is incurred.
Linings and Tank Membranes
Over time, tank linings and membranes, whether cement or otherwise, can become old and damaged allowing leaking water to corrode pipes – an infrared and thermal imaging scan of the tank from ground level can identify any problems.
With ground subsidence or movement, underground pipework feeding from the water tank could be damaged allowing for cracks and water leaks – a damp testing thermal imaging scan would identify the leak location.
