We see this all the time. Most people don’t even consider repairing their damaged poly tank. Rather, choose to replace it with a new tank. Unless the damage to your tank is beyond repair, it is generally better to get it repaired. Below are the reasons why you should consider repairing your plastic water tank before you replace it:
- Cost: This varies but in most cases unless the poly water tank is beyond repair, purchasing a new tank is generally a lot more expensive than getting it repaired. As there is the cost of purchasing a new tank, delivery, installation among other costs.
- Logistics: When replacing a damaged poly water tank generally, there is a need to disconnect, dispose of the old tank and then purchase a new tank. In addition to that, there is the cost and hassle of correct placement of the tank and correct preparation of the base that the tank will need to sit on and the installing and reconnecting new down pipe and pump pipe connections.
- Better for the Environment: Why replace, when the old tank in most cases, can be repaired. This extends the life of the tank and saves the waste that will end up in landfills.
Overall, repairing a poly water tank is a much better deal than purchasing a new one. Contact us for more information.
