Did you know Gutter-Vac Townsville also does tank cleaning? We know that many Australians like to use tank water as it can be more economical than relying on town water. However, for many rural areas it is their only source of water, or at least, drinkable water.
Having your water tank cleaned on a regular basis (every four or five years) is important for a couple of reasons. A build-up of sludge and grime in your tank can result in rusting. This can be costly because your tank will either need to be repaired or replaced. More, importantly however, is the risk of your water becoming contaminated and unsafe to drink. If this occurs, then your tank will need cleaning immediately.
It is important to remember that the state of your water tank and the quality of your water is directly related to how clean and well-maintained your gutters are. If your gutters contain any pollutants such as dirt, rubbish, insects, moss, animal droppings or even dead animals, then those things can potentially flow into your tank and contaminate your water. Even if these things don’t end up in your tank, any water flowing over them and into it will be contaminated. Therefore, we recommend that you have your gutters cleaned at the same time as your tank. This will ensure that your water is as clean 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. 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. Our technique requires no chemicals, so your water will be left clean and safe to use. We also dispose of all the mess for you.
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.
