Water Tank Cleaning Is Important

There is a lot more going on in potable water than most operators really understand. Potable water is constantly tested but the sediment that builds up in almost all water storage tanks and towers is seldom thought of.  Tank sediment makes a fertile habitat for a wide range of microbes. In 2013 we found these microbes in a twenty year old water tank that had never been cleaned. We used a video microscope to take a close look at a singe drop of water.  It is amazing how many critters we found in this little drop of water. Keeping water storage tanks clean is a lot more important than many people understand. Microbes use tank sediment to hide from treatment chemicals, allowing them to grow and become a larger problem.  Bacteria Protozoa and even viruses can get a foothold in your water system.  Removing the sediment can lower your disinfectant cost and help you avoid RTCR violations.  For a free inspection or cleaning quote call 817-377-4899.  #watermanagement #drinkingwater #potablewater
