In the meantime, we will share with you some useful information taken from an interesting article on the CSIROscope website. You can read the full article by clicking here,It’s raining water tanks: keeping them healthy and efficient
A very good point was made when they said “households may not be aware of some of the maintenance requirements that come with rainwater tank ownership.”
Read the full article and watch the video on rainwater tank cleaning.
While browsing the net we also came across this article from Homey Improvements, How to take care of your tank. Written in 2015, it is a little older information but is still very relevant today.
By reading the full article, you will see that they suggest that tank maintenance begins even before purchasing, and installing your rainwater tank. They have really put some thought into caring for your tank from the start.
This is a really good point, and is quote from their article. We encourage you to read it in full.
“One important consideration when choosing a plastic water tank is its ability to keep sunlight out. Sunlight fosters the growth of algae, which can cause disease in both humans and animals. If you are looking for a tank, you will want to make sure it has a total block out color that eliminates any sun penetrating the water because that allows algae to grow in your tank.”
