When was the last time you had your Water Tank Cleaned?

Most people claim they have never had their rainwater tank cleaned, and claim the water is just fine; just a hint of colour or a slight taste.

Why should you clean your Water Tank?

Over time leaves and debris enter the tank and begin to decompose on the bottom of the tank, turning the water a dark brown colour. Tank cleaning can reduce potential damage to your Water Pump, blockages of pipes, increase the life of your water filters, and where there are no filters, potential damage to your tapware, and is the first stage in ensuring the purity of your drinking water supply.

How often do you clean a Water Tank?

The Ministry of Health recommends annual tank cleaning Рhowever with appropriate filtration and bacteria control (UV) this can typically be 1-3 years.

After Cleaning, why Sanitise your Water Tank?

After a tank is cleaned, you can choose to have the balance of the water in the tank sanitised – this allows any suspended organic matter to be neutralised and taken to the bottom of the tank, it will also disinfect the water for bacteria and neutralise any organisms. The sanitiser will then self-neutralise after number of hours. This is an optional extra to the tank cleaning process, but highly recommended to ensure the purity of your drinking water supply.
