Repair of Drinking Water Tanks

Ensuring Clean Drinking Water through Tank Certification

Perfect drinking water is a precious commodity. Hygienic, durable, and stable drinking water tanks are an essential prerequisite. Inspections of drinking water tanks consist of an evaluation of the materials used –focusing on their condition, strength, and hygienic suitability. A final assessment of the overall condition of the drinking water tank is also done. The results of the inspections are used to develop repair proposals. TÜV Rheinland’s services include determining concrete properties and analyses of microbiological material and the water itself. Upon completion we issue an expert report on your drinking water tanks and monitor any work that must be carried out to repair them.
