There's no need to wait for an available date with local water tank companies. Hiring a Tasker means you can get the job even on the same day.
Not really. You don't have to provide tools or equipment for your water tank repair. Your Tasker can bring the necessary supplies, so you won't have to worry about anything else. If, however, you have some essential tools on hand, you're free to lend them to your Tasker. They can also drop by the hardware store along the way to pick up any other equipment that's needed to complete the job.
Sure! Airtasker is a reliable community marketplace where you can readily outsource major or minor tasks. If you need a hand with your plumbing, you can easily find a Tasker near you that can help you out! Whether it's fixing pipes, clearing blocked drains, or installing dishwashers, you can find a plumber who can work within your budget and at your preferred schedule.
How long it takes to repair a water talk all boils down to how severe the damage is. Small leaks can quickly be completed within an hour or so while a water tank replacement may take more time. If you want to know how long your service will take, you can ask your Tasker, and they'll be happy to go over the job with you.
With proper maintenance, a water storage tank can last up to 15 years or even more. Although most tanks have a general warranty of only five years, a tank that's regularly inspected, cleaned, and maintained can have a long and useful life. In general, a water storage tank's lifespan would depend on several factors, including the type of tank, the material used in manufacturing, and whether it's positioned above or under the ground.
Airtasker helps you find professionals who can do most house maintenance work. If you're looking to install a new gas appliance or repair your old one, you can hire a gas fitter to get the job done for you safely.

What do water tank installation and repair services include?

Water tank installation and repair covers what's necessary to install new water tanks to your home or repair old ones and restore them in good running condition. Regardless of size, design, and specifications, you can hire an expert to handle your water tank-related needs so you can have peace of mind knowing they're in expert hands. Not only will you be able to reduce your water bills and environmental impact, but you'll also be safeguarding you and your family's health. Here's what we can do for you:

Water tank installation

If you just moved into a new home to start anew, our Taskers can help you install backup water tanks so you can be ready for any emergencies. Before installation, you must first check with your local council and water authority in case your tank needs approval.

Once confirmed, your Tasker starts by carefully choosing where to place your water tank. Its position must be unobtrusive, readily accessible, and close to a downpipe. They'll then take the inlet screen of your tank and connect it with your existing downpipe, fit a cleaning or filtering device, then check if all remaining parts fit correctly before installation.

Your tank's outlet holes are then drilled in, the tap or hose fitting screwed in place, and lastly, Teflon tape is wrapped around the fitting to reduce leakage. For proper water storage tank maintenance, your Tasker will also remind you to clean your filters and strainers regularly.

Water tank repair

One of the most common water tank issues is leakage. To repair your water tank, your Tasker first drains the equipment below the level of the tear and clean the surface of any grime or dirt. Then, they drill a tiny hole on both ends of the tear and heat the area surrounding the hole with a heat gun or propane torch. The filler material is then placed over the tear and continuously heated until it covers the damage completely.

Once the tank is cooled down, your Tasker tests it out by refilling the equipment with water and re-checking for any leaks. In case you own a solar water heater tank, your Tasker can also handle the repair for you. Most solar water tank problems arise from pipe degradation due to harsh UV rays and rough weather conditions. Improper installation or no maintenance of valves, pumps, and sensors can also contribute to problems over time. If your solar water heater tank is malfunctioning, the quickest and most cost-effective solution is replacing it with new parts.

Water tank removal

Your Tasker can also handle your water tank removal in case you have a dormant water tank that's worn down and no longer in use. Since water tanks are heavy and pose health and safety risks, professional help and specialised equipment are needed for the job. From safely removing the tank off of your property to cleaning up the area afterwards, you can leave the job to your Tasker and let them do the heavy lifting for you.
