The Ultimate Guide to Water Tank Cleaning

Have you recently moved into a home with a water tank and are unsure how often you should clean it? The duration will vary based on where you live, but we recommend cleaning your water tank at least once a year for health and safety reasons. Cleaning your tank every three months also helps keep an eye on your mosquito mesh for pests and leaf litter.

How often should you clean your water tank? How many times per year should you do it?

This is a frequently asked question. No, we don’t get into your water tank; it’s a much simpler approach. To remove the sludge and silt from the bottom of your tank, we employ high-performance Water Pump Accessories and vacuum pumps. This approach has numerous advantages, particularly in terms of reducing water loss. If you have your tank cleaned regularly, expect to lose 5–15cm of water. If your water tank is not cleaned in a while, it may require more water at first.

Cleaning your tank is beneficial for more than just guaranteeing the safety of your water. Regular cleaning will protect your Water tank pump, extend the life of your water filters, and limit the risk of damage to your household faucets.

How to get started with your first round of cleansing?

It is not necessary to get your tank cleaned at any specific period of the year. Throughout the year, we clean the water tanks.

However, having your water tank cleaned on a day when everyone is at work or school may be a smart idea. First, turn off the pump and the water supply valve when we arrive to prevent any muck from being sucked into your pipes. After that, we recommend turning off the pump for 2-3 hours after we depart to allow everything to settle. After cleaning your tank, if you utilize the chlorination method to sanitize the water, now is an excellent time to dose it. Then, when you turn the pump and wand back on, your water will be ready to drink.
