We have also heard from time to time that Vacuum tests is not really a real world test.” Is this due to the fact tanks do not operate in vacuum pressure or a vacuum test exerts a consistent pressure on all six factors of a reservoir, when the truth is soil and ground water loads fluctuate with depth? The truth is that a vacuum test can be designed so that it approximates the maximum loads the container will experience in the bottom. Although this is a conservative approach, it generally does not diminish its validity.

Early on there was converse that poor concrete mixes led to deterioration, but this notion did not endure what contractors saw in the field. In a single subdivision all the homes got concrete tanks made by the same company, and all homes drew water from the same source, yet only one-third of the tanks exhibited deterioration, Gustafson says.
Precast concrete building components and site amenities are being used architecturally as fireplace mantels, cladding, lean products, accessories and curtain wall space. Structural applications of precast cement include foundations, beams, surfaces, walls and other structural components. It is essential that each structural aspect be designed and examined to withstand both tensile and compressive loads that the member will be subjected to over its lifespan.
