Water Tanks

When Was the Last Time Your Water Tank Was Cleaned? Understanding the Risks and Solutions

Regular maintenance of water tanks is an often overlooked aspect of property management, yet it is crucial for ensuring the safety and efficiency of your water supply. At NT Cloke Pumps & Water, we specialise in thorough cleaning and maintenance of water tanks, helping you mitigate risks and maintain optimal water quality. Here’s why regular water tank cleaning is essential and how neglecting it can impact your health and operations.

The Importance of Regular Water Tank Cleaning

1. Preventing Contamination:

Water tanks can harbour bacteria, viruses, and fungi over time, especially if not regularly cleaned and disinfected. Contaminants such as Legionella, which can cause serious health issues, thrive in stagnant water. Regular cleaning helps in removing sediments and biofilm that can be breeding grounds for these pathogens.

2. Enhancing Water Quality:

Sediment build-up can lead to discoloured water and unpleasant tastes or odours. Routine cleaning ensures that the water remains clear, taste-free, and more pleasant for consumption or use in processes.

3. Maintaining System Efficiency:

Debris and sediment can lead to blockages and reduce the efficiency of your water system. Cleaning helps in maintaining the pressure and flow rate, ensuring your systems are running efficiently.

4. Extending Equipment Lifespan:

By preventing sediment build-up and corrosion, regular tank cleaning can prolong the life of not only the tank itself but also associated pipework and pumps. This can save considerable costs over time in terms of replacements and repairs.

5. Regulatory Compliance:

For many businesses, especially those in the hospitality and healthcare sectors, regular water tank cleaning is not just recommended but required by health and safety regulations to prevent waterborne diseases.
