Water Tank Category Blog Posts by the Floating Boatyard in London, Essex and Hertfordshire

This category shows our posts on water tanks. Most boats have them fitted. If not correctly maintained they can cause big problems both or the boat and the people using them. Our posts show how we go about looking after water tanks to prevent leaks and water spoilage.

All boat works undertaken from our orange ex British Waterways workboat. We operate on the river Lea in East London, North London, Essex and Hertfordshire. The business is set up as a worker owned cooperative with a charitable focus.
