Water Treatment & Storage

Crown Gardens Water Tower

Gauteng, South Africa

Description

The 30 m (99 feet) high water pressure tower in Crown Gardens, a suburb of about 4,000 inhabitants immediately south of Johannesburg, holds 2,000 m3 (528,344 US gallons) of drinking water (more than double that of the original water tower from the 1970s) and adds 2.9 bars of natural gravity pressure to the local water pipeline.


Products Used

Pronto, the ready-mix supplier, treated 2,000 m3 (2,615 cubic yards) of concrete with PENETRON ADMIX. The PENEBAR SW-55 swellable waterstop strips were installed along the construction joints of the water-containing structure by Maxlife Solutions, a Penetron-approved applicator, to ensure waterproof joints. In a final step, PENETRON and PENECRETE MORTAR were used to repair areas of light honeycombing on the surface as a precaution by the contracting team.
