CSC Services recently completed a scheme of work to clean and refurbish a reservoir.
An access hatch was raised and recast to combat a bacterial fail. This involved cleaning a tank and applying appropriate waterproof coatings. A new upstand was constructed using Natcem 35 fast setting and fast curing repair mortar. The hatch was sealed using fosroc nitroseal and decothene waterproof membrane to guard against water ingress and carbonation.
CSC Services have extensive experience of completing similar repair work at water companies across the UK. Operatives are able to advise on correct coatings to ensure cost effective refurbishments to a range of assets.
A step by step guide to the repair work is detailed below:
