 Advice From Our Water Tank Expert: Methods of Containing a Water Tank for Painting

Preparing a water tank for a painting project can be a large undertaking that necessitates planning and organization. Watch and listen as Sam Scaturro explains the two proven methods in containing a water tank to prepare it for painting.

There are two ways to contain the exterior of a water tank, a flexible system and a rigid system.

1. The flexible system or "TP system" contains the water tank within an umbrella-like structure welded to the roofing connected to cables or beams running down into the ground. This system is used for raising and lowering the containment tarp on a daily basis. Flexible systems are less expensive, but have a high risk of losing the containment tarps during windy days. This system can generally withstand winds up to 20 - 25 MPH winds.

2. The rigid style of containment is a series of scaffoldings erected around the structure, sometimes welded to the structure itself. Although this system of containment may be more expensive, this system can withstand higher wind speeds up to 50 - 60 MPH winds.

Alpine has the qualifications for completing the complex jobs. When strict safety guidelines and procedures such as confined space, scaffolding, rigging, containment and respirator use are required no company has higher standards than we do.
