This week, we cleaned one of many rainwater tanks. The owners were horrified to see the state of the water as it flowed out prior to cleaning. Sometimes we forget that the quality of the water is affected by the state of not only the roof gutters that the rain flows from but the tank itself. Once you have the debris removed from the gutters and the tank cleaned, you can be assured that the quality of the water is perfect.
The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (published by the Federal Health Dept) recommend that along with regular maintenance, you should desludge your rainwater tank about every 2-3 years. We live on acreage ourselves and have 2 concrete water tanks that we clean regularly so that we can be assured that our drinking water is the best it can be.
If you want your roof gutters and water tanks cleaned, call us on 1300 654 253.
