Fitment of taps to a GRP (Glass Reinforced Product) tank

A split tank within an enclosed space was causing problems for employees who needed to gain access for sampling purposes.

The problems for employees

  1. Working at height
  2. Employees had to reach into the water storage tank to take water samples (without falling in!)

The solution

DCS fitted a tap at reasonable height at the opposed end to the float valve. The taps have made sampling much easier for employees to carry out and addressed the health and safety issues.
