GRP Water Tanks


Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) is made of fine glass fibres woven to form a flexible fabric; then, it is layered with resin and a catalyst left to cure, which results in a strong and lightweight final product. GRP material offers the best solutions for robust, reliable water tanks. GRP Water Tanks are typically used in cold water systems to store large volumes of water.

Benefits of GRP Water Tanks

There are different benefits GRP provides over old traditional alternatives such as galvanised steel tanks. Here are five main benefits of GRP Water Tanks.

  • Corrosion Resistant

Unlike traditional metal or steel tanks, GRP cold water storage tanks are immune to rust and can last for decades without any signs of deterioration. GRP water tanks will not rust and are ideal for areas with harsh or ever-changing weather conditions. Steel tanks could not withstand extreme weather conditions because the material is subject to oxidation. Aluminium tanks rust over time and require another coating to protect them from excessive heat/cold temperatures. GRP is corrosion-resistant to chemicals, wastewater or sewage.

  • High Strength Factor

Despite being lightweight, GRP material is stronger than the alternatives available, such as galvanised steel tanks. The strength-to-weight load-bearing performance is far superior to other options. Steel has to be heavy for it to be strong, which makes an empty tank heavier than an empty GRP tank, affecting the capacities that customers can get. Aluminium tanks would offer lower strength capabilities compared to GRP water tanks.

  • Low Maintenance Requirements

GRP water tanks will last you for decades, and this is due to their corrosion-resistant properties, meaning that they require minimal maintenance. Steel, concrete and aluminium tanks would require frequent maintenance because the tanks rust easily and would require additional coating. The smooth finish on our water tanks minimises the buildup of sediment, and because they do not rust, it reduces the need for frequent maintenance, saving you time and money.

  • Lightweight Capabilities

GRP water tanks are much lighter (70% – 80% lighter than steel), making them easier to transport and install. This lightweight construction allows for flexible placement options, even in locations with limited access. This saves project costs because no machinery is required to lift the panels.

  • Hygienic and Safe

GRP material is ideal for preventing contaminants, algae or bacteria such as Legionella from thriving. This is the best solution for potable water, and our range of GRP tanks are WRAS Approved, ensuring they meet the highest standards for storing clean, safe water for human consumption. GRP is also a non-toxic material, which eliminates the risk of chemical leaching that can occur with some other tank materials, providing you with peace of mind for the long term.
