Waterproofing Your Water Tank with Expert Solutions

The overhead water tank is the lifeline of domestic life. We use the water it stores for bathing, doing our laundry, washing our utensils, sweeping the floors of our home, and all the other countless tasks that make up the paraphernalia of everyday life. 

In fact, each time we wash our hands before eating, it's the water stored in the water tank we use. If this water were to become a fertile breeding ground for algae, fungus, bacteria, and countless other potentially harmful microorganisms, the health risks posed to our families would be enormous. 

There is another problem with water tanks, whether placed overhead or underground - they are prone to leakages. Since this leakage is often small, taking the form of seepage or moisture rather than a discernible stream of water, we tend to ignore it. 

However, over time, this moisture from the water tank can seep into the walls of the house and weaken them. In the case of underground water tanks, it can weaken the very foundation of your house, leaving it vulnerable to damage and even collapse.


Additionally, leakage also leads to water wastage. Even small amounts of water leaking over time can result in a significant loss of precious water. And as the old adage goes, we never realize the worth of water till the well goes dry. 

Importance of water tank waterproofing

We see then a twin problem with overhead or underground water tanks - one of ensuring the safety of the water we use for everyday chores, and second, of ensuring that it does not leak.

Is there a solution to it?

Yes and no.

Yes, because you can deal with the problem of seepage by waterproofing your water tank.

No, because conventional water tank proofing methods have severe limitations when it comes to ensuring the safety of your water tank, your health, and your home.

Limitations of conventional water tank waterproofing methods

The problem with conventional water tank leakage solutions is three-fold:

1. They use materials such as putty or cement slurry that are, at best, a temporary fix. A few months later, you are likely to be back to square one with your leakage problem.

2. Most conventional fixes can only be applied to the point of leakage in a tank, not to the whole tank. And since leakage often occurs through very fine, capillary-like pores, pinpointing it is easier said than done. 

3. And finally, conventional water tank leakage solutions do nothing for the safety and hygiene of the water stored in your water tank.
