most of us focus primarily on the purification of the water tank cleaning that we drink or use for cooking purpose. But we rarely pay attention on the water tank cleaning. Every day we use the water for brushing and bathing, for cleaning and moping, for washing clothes and in other household chores. With the passage of time, sediments, scale and algae get deposited on the walls, ceiling and floor of the water tank cleaning. This deposition contaminate the water and makes it unfit for use. With time algae and bacteria grow and breed in this water, infect it and could make us fall sick eventually. It simply means that our ignorance may take a toll on the health of our family.

Tank cleaning is very necessary and should be done at least once in a year. But it also depend on the quality of water supplied into homes. If the water is very hard and high in TDS, then sedimentation will happen more often. In such cases more than one annual water tank cleaning is required.

Step 1: The area surrounding the tank and top of the tank is cleaned

Step 2: Tools used in tank cleaning process are disinfected

Step 3: Water and sludge is drained out from the tank using a sludge pump

Step 4: Manual scrubbing of the tank is done to remove the dirt, sediments, fungus & stains

Step 5: Walls, ceiling and floor of the tank is washed using a high pressure jet

Step 6: Vacuum cleaning is done to ensure that all the dirt is sucked out

Step 7: Vacuumed tank is disinfected with anti-bacterial spray or liquid bleach

Step 8: Tank is filled with water that is made to run through the taps to disinfect the water pipes

Step 9: Water from the tank is drained through the taps and tank is left empty for drying
