In your water tank, harmful bacteria
levels increase when a build up of debris decompose on the bottom
of the tank leading to a thick layer of sediment. This can result
in blocked water filters, washing machine filters, etc. This debris
may consist of leaves, plant blossoms, bird droppings, dust, ash,
etc from the roof, or dead insects and animals including rats, snakes,
toads, etc that enter the tank through the down pipes, manhole or
overflow pipe. These nasties can all result in smelly and bad tasting
We can implement the following measures
for clean drinking water from your tank; 1. Install overflow pipe
flaps to minimise mosquito breading and vermin entering the tank.
2. Install leaf beaters and first flush diverters. Leaf beaters
filter leaves entering through the down pipes while first flush
diverters prevent the first runoff of water from entering the tank.
3. Regular water tank cleaning. Additionally, you should always
ensure gutters are kept clean and free of debris. This may include
installing gutter guard and pruning trees near the roof.
The enHealth Council of Australia
(associated with federal, state and local government) states, "All
tanks should be examined for accumulation of sediments every 2-3
years or if sediment is evident in the water flow." They recommend
tank cleaning and installation of first flush devices to ensure
your water is clean, free from bad odours and not discoloured.
Water Tank Cleaning and Repairing
Crystal Clear Tanks has operated
on the Mid North Coast based in Coffs Harbour since 2002. We have
a range of water tank services including water tank cleaning, concrete
tank repairs and installation of first flush devices and leaf beaters.
For tank cleaning we use a specialised
method to remove the sludge, sediment and other foreign matter from
the tank to leave clean, hygienic water. We can clean full tanks
with minimal water loss as well as empty tanks.
We also use a specialised waterproofing
method to repair concrete water tanks avoiding the need for costly
plastic liners. Firstly, we adequately prepare the tank to achieve
the best possible outcome for the repair (good preparation is a
vital key to a lasting repair). We then patch the cracks and holes
with a waterproofing, plugging product that will prevent and stop
water leaks and seeps. The last option is to apply a waterproof
slurry to the entire inside area of the tank.

When enquiring about a tank clean
or repair, you should be first familiar with the volume of your
tank. Water tanks commonly come in 3 main sizes; 5000, 10000 or
20000 gallon. To aid with the calculation of the tank size we have
provided a calculator using the tank dimensions.
