Cleaning Rainwater Tanks in Cairns

Did you know Gutter-Vac Cairns also does tank cleaning? For many Australian households, tank water is their only source of water, or at least, drinkable water. Therefore, having your water tank cleaned on a regular basis (every four or five years) is extremely important.

The above pictures are some before and after shots of a recent tank clean that our team did in Cairns. A build-up of sludge and grime in your tank, like in these before pictures, can result in rusting. While this can be costly because your tank will either need to be repaired or replaced, a far greater concern is the risk to your health if your water becomes contaminated and unsafe to drink.

It is important to remember that any pollutants in your gutters, such as dirt, rubbish, insects, moss, animal droppings or even dead animals can contaminate your water due to water flowing over them or actually carrying them down into your tank. If your water does become contaminated it is crucial that you have your tank cleaned immediately.

Because the quality of your water is directly related to the cleanliness of your gutters we also recommend that you have your gutters cleaned at the same time as your tank. This will mean that your entire rainwater collecting system is clean and contaminant free, and ensures that your water is as clean and safe as possible.

Our trained and qualified technicians can safely and efficiently remove any sludge, sediment and other pollutants from the bottom of your tank using our state-of-the-art vacuum machine, with no chemicals required. We can even clean your tank while it’s full so as not to waste water; or, if the water is contaminated, we can empty the tank first.

So, if you have a water tank and know that your gutters are full, or you’re concerned that your water isn’t as clean as it should be, give Gutter-Vac Townsville a call. We’ll be happy to provide a free quote and answer any questions you may have.
