Once you’ve had your custom tank liner installed around the interior of your metal, concrete, or plastic containment tank, there isn’t much more you need to do. Your tank liner protects the storage tank from corrosion and its contents from leaks with very little effort from you or your employees. However, to ensure the tank’s success, it’s important to know how to maintain tank liners and perform simple checkups to know if it’s performing its function.
Monitor for Leaks
It’s difficult to monitor the overall health of your tank liner once it’s installed. Due to the scale of some tanks and the inaccessibility of others, simply taking a look inside the tank isn’t always an option. Whether you have a tall municipal water tank or an underground storage tank, monitoring for leaks often requires you to inspect the liquid and its flow. If you notice any abnormalities with the flow or differences in liquid volume, you may have a leak in your liner.
Other signs of leaks or damage to the liner include:
- Tank corrosion and rust
- Fixture damage (pipes, connections, etc.)
- Change in tank pressure
- Change in tank temperature
The liner experts that installed the tank can help you with repairs when your tank experiences leaks or damage.
Know What the Liner Can Handle
When you order a tank liner, it’s customized to fit in your specific tank with the contents that you intend to store. If you choose to store something else, your liner may not be suited to handle it. Make sure you follow the rules—only store the intended liquid within the tank. Don’t switch the stored liquid without first consulting your tank liner manufacturer.
