Proven Performance, the same system as used on Melbourne's Burnely Tunnel and Many other Commercial Building Projects.

STOP THE RUST - The pressure injection system used here to repair leaking concrete tanks is the only system that will seperate the leaking water from the steel reinforcing mesh inside the concrete tank wall.The system seals the leaking crack from the outside face of the tank all the way through to the inside face eliminating water up against steel. This will stop the rust and prolong the life span of the tank. Once the steel reinforcing mesh rusts through on tanks that is when you see tanks walls blowing out and you loose everything.

GENERAL NOTE ON TANK LINERS - Tank Liners are designed for steel modular panel tanks ( as you will see on our web site page under water tanks ), with smooth non abrasive steel sides, these sides are then again protected with a geotex fabric liner before the polyethylene liner is installed into the tank. The feedback we get at each field day attended from many farmers / property owners who have installed tank liners into there concrete tank is - our liners has failed, only been installed for 3 + years and the liners has perferated / torn and dropped inside the tank causing the tank to leak again, can you fix the tank ?? Answer is yes. The reason the liners we offer ( refer to website page tank liners ), for concrete tank are a butyle rubber liner which on average is double the thickness and strength of the polyethylene liners and is used for example as channel / dam liners. They will last but they are more expensive.

In short be careful with the amount of money you are willing to spend on a tank liner install, because it will only last a short time, concrete is abrasive and polyethylene liners aren't design to rub against an abrasive concrete surface !  

MORTAR CRYSTAL GROWTH REPAIR SYSTEMS - CONCRETE TANK LEAKING CRACK REPAIRS - An important note to consider when looking at repair options for tank wall crack leaks, this repair system is a rigid mortar system when cured, so it won't expand and contract with the concrete with the differing climate conditions through the year. A rigid mortar will only recrack in the same position as the repair area due to concrete movement. You need a flexible rubber sealant when repairing leaking tanks that will move wit the climatic conditions. Our pressure injection system does just that. Proven commercially for many long years, this is definatley the way to go when comparing leaking crack repair systems. The majority of our work is after people have tried the DIY fix of crystals.

December 2013 - Client Reference. Valerie BRENNAN, Greta West ( Near Glenrowan ), Victoria 3675

I knew it was time to take action on significant leaks in our 30,000 gallon domestic water tank and was looking at some seriously costly options and the potential loss of a full tank of water when I found Darren’s website. Seemed almost too good to be true but certainly worth a chat, so I made a phone call. Whoops, would have been smarter to read the instructions on the Website first and taken the measurements. The return call was pleasant, brief, efficient and gave me the estimated cost and a potential date for the job. It was a largish job 14M of cracks hidden behind agapanthus and other shrubbery. The day arrived, and so did Darren & Mick, on time and proceeded to unload and get on with the job at hand, no problems, no fuss, clearly very experienced at what they do. I was, and three weeks later continue to be amazed, no leaks, a full tank of water and very effective, cost efficient outcome.

The best part though was that all of this happened as promised, quality workmanship, on time, within the quote. It was, as the old advert went “like flying with British Airways” all done with a minimum of fuss.

I am more than happy to recommend TankShop to anyone looking to save their tank and more importantly their water.

Thanks guys, a job very well done!

Hello Darren

Just a quick email to thank you for a super professional job on our tank. I
was sceptical about your method when everyone else wanted to remove the
cover, drain the tank and paint it or put in liners or dig it out of the
slope or otherwise spend many thousands of our money and make us move out of
the house for a few weeks (hotel ?). But dealing with you was a pleasure,
you did everything you said you would and the results are amazing. There are
no leaks now, the tank seems very happy and we are happy having spent well
under tank liner pricing including your transport and GST. You were here half a day
including clean-up of your tools.


I would be very happy to endorse your service based on our excellent
experience

All the best

February - 2013 -

Hi Darren,
Our tank is still not leaking, your special goo seems to have done the trick.
It's great mowing the lawn again now it's all dry and our tank is once again holding lots of water.
Would you mind putting something in writing about why you think the horizontal crack appeared in our tank almost 3/4 the way around as I want to try and claim on insurance. We have put the claim in but want something to confirm its not wear and tear.

Could you also give me a quote to finish the rest of the crack off so we have a complete job.
I would estimate say another 6 meters or so worth of work.

Cheers
Wayne

To anyone reading this, we cannot stress enough what a huge relief it is to know that our cracked tank is fixed.

In addition, the thought of how much water we have lost over the years is a puzzle.Thank you Darren. Thank you.

Food Grade, Potable Water approved !

We have a revolutionary product on the market which is an exclusive sealant to repair concrete water tank cracks from leaking. This sealant provides a fully waterproof potable, ( food grade ) seal. From the inside of the tank wall through to the outside of the wall. The advantage with this sealant is it is flexible and has a elongation rating which means it will expand and contract with future concrete movement up to a point. Other concrete treatments don't ? External injection sealant means we can treat the crack from the outside with the water kept inside the tank. The advantages here make this treatment the most economical solution available.

My 95Kl concrete water tank developed vertical cracks which became leakers and did not self-seal. Tank Shop sealed the cracks and fitted steel bands around the tank to prevent any further cracking. The workmanship was very professional and I am really pleased with the result.

Ray Marston, Boolarra

There was a 2.7 Metre crack, plus several smaller ones in our tank that were leaking a lot of water causing bogginess in quite a large area, After speaking with Darren he promptly came out to repair it. After treatment to my amazement the water has stopped leaking and the ground has started to dry out. Thank You Darren, I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who has a tank problem.

Refer to the photo's below - this shows how the application looks from the outside but we also have two internal photo's showing how the sealant travels through the complete wall thickness, ( 100mm of concrete wall ), sealing the wall from internal face to external face, the complete leak solution !!

If we had not seen it for our very own eyes we would not have believed it. In retrospect, what a lot of wasted water not knowing that there was a quick and easy solution available to us. Never would we have believed that a 17,000 gallon concrete tank with an 8 metres crack around its waist, oozing water almost half way around its middle, could be fixed. Let alone in just one day!

Nor would we have believed that your method would be cheaper than the alternatives. You are a magician!

To anyone reading this, we cannot stress enough what a huge relief it is to know that our cracked tank is fixed. Not only was it unsightly but it created a knee deep quagmire in the paddock rendering it useless for our sheep. It created a smelly mosquito infested lagoon that seeped into the sewerage run off pipe and was dreadful. In addition, the thought of how much water we have lost over the years is a puzzle.

Thank you Darren. Thank you. We will be singing your praises to all who will listen!

Already we have passed your business card out.

The tank at Wild Dog Winery hadn't, according to the local farmer next door, hasn't been used for a period of 25 years. After our treatment this tank is now being used for there restaurant area, The Dog House. Not a bad reference for the application !! Certainly a far cheaper option then demolishing the existing tank and replacing with a new tank.

Client Reference's :-

Good afternoon Darren,

I just wanted to let you know that the repairs that you did to the Concrete Water Tank up at Yinnar South seems to have done the job. It is now nearly full again after all the rain and it shows no sign of leaking or seeping.

I must admit that I did not think that you would be able to repair without emptying the tank and doing it from the inside as well as out as one of the lower cracks was quite large but you proved me wrong.

Your repair work has saved me a lot of trouble and considerable expense and I thank you for a job well done. I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending the effectiveness of your repair process.

Kindest Regards

We have had a crack in our tank for a few years now & we had previously been told that we would have to empty the tank to have the leaks repaired. We were never keen to do this with the dry seasons and having to refill our tank.

We recently visited Farm World at Warragul & noticed “The Tank Shop” stand in which we were able to have Darren come out to our tank & inspect it with recommendations to repair the 1.8 metre crack which over time had constant water running down the face of the tank not only causing loss of water but an ongoing mildew slime mess area around the leak and bottom of the tank.
 

I’m delighted to say that Darren came out within 2 weeks & repaired the crack within one day and most importantly without a drop of water being wasted. He then revisited to ensure the repair was strong and we have had no problems since.

Darren also has provided further recommendations to ensure the life of our tank.

Thank you Darren and we would highly recommend you for any concrete water tank leaking problems.

Yours Sincerely
