The new cold water tank fitted and sealed. Additionally all associated water pipes have been lagged to prevent cold weather issues.

 

An old cold water tank that Freshwater has replaced - would you want to wash in water from this?

What's in your loft?

There are a range of old water tanks which you may have, these could be any of the following:-

  • asbestos (now illegal)
  • galvanised steel (which corrode)
  • fibreglass (which scale easily)
  • If you have any of these in your loft - then we would recommend that these are replaced with a new sealed unit plastic tank. New cold water tanks come in all shapes and sizes and can be fitted within a day!

    We see many instance of open cold water storage tanks, which can cause problems due to the possibility of insects, dust, dirt and even birds getting into the tank and therefore contaminating the water which in time would lead to unsafe water quality. (The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 )

    After replacement, the new water tank is safe. It has been sealed therefore, preventing contamination and maintaining safe water quality. The tank has also been lagged to prevent freezing and potential burst pipes.
