Frequently Asked Questions
What are the rules for cold water storage tanks?
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Management of Health and Safety at Work and COSHH, it is a legal requirement for any duty holder to carry out regular inspections and risk assessments when using a cold water tank. Under these regulations, it states that cold water should be stored below 20°C to prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria. Additionally, it advises that water tanks should not be left to become stagnant and should be replenished frequently.
How big should a cold water storage tank be?
The size of the tank you need will depend on a number of factors such as the demand for cold water, considering the number of cold water outlets within the building and the number of people who will require access to the water at any one time.
Should you insulate a cold water tank?
If you store your cold water tank in a loft or attic, it can be prone to freezing when the temperature drops. To prevent this from happening, you should insulate your tank using an insulation jacket. All of our cold water storage tanks are supplied with an insulation jacket and fastenings.
What is the life expectancy of a cold water storage tank?
A polyethylene water tank should last between 15 and 20 years providing proper installation and maintenance.
