In certain parts of England the treated potable water is stored in underground reservoirs prior to being distributed to homes and businesses. These underground tanks are typically constructed of concrete or brick/block with a concrete reinforced roof. The land above these reservoirs is used for purposes such as farming which includes the use of fertilizers and chemicals. Constructed 30 to 40 years ago, the concrete roofs of the reservoirs have become porous potentially allowing dirty rain water and farming chemicals to penetrate the concrete and enter the drinking water. The customer was looking for an effective long term solution of sealing the reservoirs that did not require rebuilding or taking them out of service.
Swimming starting blocks are not only necessary for competitive swimming but they are a valuable tool for any venue that provides the opportunity to show school pride.The University of Nebraska purchased stainless steel swimming blocks 30 years ago. Due to the constant contact with chlorinated water, the blocks were suffering from extreme corrosion even though they had been refinished. The corrosion was not only unsightly but was also damaging the blocks limiting the lifespan of the school investment. The cost of replacement on a school’s limited budget was unfeasible. LINE-X offered a quick solution that was cost-effective, provided long-lasting results and added the bonus of skid resistant safety features necessary in blocks. Furthermore,the solution presented the University with quality, vibrant starting blocks that screamed school spirit.
