Water Silo Certification and Maintenance
As already mentioned, your water silo is an essential part of your overall water installation.
Storing water in silos also means that the silos have to be maintained. Failure to maintain silos properly has caused all sorts of accidents in the past.
The silo has a specific wall thickness that depends on its capacity and height. Over time, this wall thickness is affected by things such as damage and corrosion.
Insurance companies also currently require your silo to be certified. Water silos that are seven or more years old must be certified once every two years. If it is determined after an inspection that 2 years is inadequate, then an interim inspection is recommended after 1 year.
The inspection report clarifies the physical condition of your silo, allowing it to be promptly repaired if any damage or rust is found. White marks can be a sign of incipient corrosion, at which point it’s time for you to take action. Ensure that damage is promptly repaired and that the coating has no gaps in it. This will reduce the risk of disasters.
