Asbestos Water Tank Removal

Crucial Environmental offers asbestos water tank removals as one of a number of specialist asbestos services. Our team has extensive experience and knowledge working with asbestos and would be happy to deal with any asbestos issues that you have. Please get in contact with us today for more information.

Removing an asbestos water tank is usually a straight-forward process, but all work carried out is to strict health and safety guidelines and regulations.

Once the tank is removed, the cement-based tank is double wrapped and sealed in heavy gauge polythene covering. It is then either placed in a locked container during transit or placed into a sealed hazardous waste skip. This process might seem extensive, but it minimises the risk of asbestos exposure.

Crucial Environmental offers services all across the UK, working from our bases in Sussex and Nottinghamshire.

Frequently Asked Questions


Are asbestos water tanks safe?

Generally, the asbestos in asbestos water tanks is found inside the cement used to make the tank – this means that this is very safe when in good condition, and will only cause problems if the tank is damaged and asbestos fibres are allowed to get into the atmosphere. As these water tanks are generally only found in much older properties, it may be time to think about replacing them, as asbestos can become dangerous if its wears down.

What does an asbestos water tank look like?

Asbestos water tanks are generally concrete tanks commonly seen in older properties. However, there are many tanks made using concrete which does not contain asbestos – this means it generally isn’t possible to tell just by looking at the tank whether it contains asbestos. To do so you need to have an asbestos survey carried out.

Can I remove my asbestos water tank?

It is best to leave any asbestos removals to professionals. If you don’t have the experience and knowledge necessary to carry out the task properly, you can be at risk of exposure.
