Why fibreglass instead of steel?
Using non metallic components fibreglass pressure tanks are rapidly replacing steel tanks in numerous applications. Fibreglass vessels offer several advantages in comparison with steel vessels.
- Waterco's quality control procedures ensure that the structural requisites of the product are achieved at every stage of production. This results in a 100% compliance of the end product with the specifications.
- The design and the manufacturing process of the whole vessel, utilizing the latest filament winding machines, incorporation of non metallic fittings plus reinforced manhole openings with proprietary methods, is unique to Waterco.
- Fibreglass vessels weigh only 1/3 the weight of steel vessels while maintaining the same level of strength. Their weight makes them easier to ship to the job site and easier to install.
- Once installed there are virtually no maintenance or repairs required. Steel vessels require the anti-corrosive coating to be maintained periodically and certified welders to make repairs to the lining with expensive epoxy coating.
