Rainwater tanks are becoming increasingly more common throughout Australia, in both rural and metropolitan regions. These tanks are especially effective for facilities or properties using large quantities of water on a regular basis and for those without access to a main supply. Over time leaves, dirt, pollen, gum nuts and other solids may enter the tank with the rain, creating a build up of solids on the tank floor. These materials will eventually break down, dissolve, rot and contaminate the water, giving it a foul taste. Such pollution will also greatly affect the overall water quality and significantly hinder the tank’s lifespan.
Riverland Tank and Drain Rainwater Tank Cleaners offer professional water tank maintenance and cleans to remove the foreign contamination from tank walls and floors. Our thorough and environmentally conscious service uses minimal water and allows for normal tank usage to resume the same day after rainwater tank cleaning. From traditional galvanised iron tanks to poly, fibre-glass and concrete, no tank is too challenging for Riverland Rainwater Tank Cleaners.
With a team of professional and experienced technicians, Riverland Tank and Drain Cleaners offers rainwater tank cleaning services & rainwater tank maintenance for a variety of tanks and locations. However, the process may slightly differ depending on the style, age and location of the facility.
After assessing the tank and identifying the most suitable access route, we will remove any necessary water from the tank. Using a high pressure cleaning system, we then clean the entire surface. This includes the internal tank walls and floor, as well as the exterior. After flushing away any built-up residue or grit, we are able to sanitise the tank with a specialised chlorine solution. A comprehensive flush using this solution will kill any bacteria and ensure the water quality is not hindered by any pollution or foreign materials.
Any chemical residue is then cleaned away. This end-to-end clean not only improves the water’s health and taste, it also ensures the tank water is not excessively stirred up and can be used the same day as cleaning. This also acts as a preventative measure to deter the growth of foreign bodies and improve the tank’s expected lifespan. A water tank refill with fresh portable drinking water can also be arranged, if required.
