Re: Underground Water Tank in Gulf

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


In the Gulf region one of your biggest problems, if you have a steel or concrete tank, is corrosion.  The soils typically have very high concentrations of evaporated sea salts.  Even above ground structural steel is often galvanized then epoxy painted, above ground concrete painted with siloxanes, and below grade concrete foundations are often completely "tanked" with a bithuthene.
