According to a new book on the subject, most people are not doing the common task of breathing correctly. James Nestor is the author of the new book BREATH: The New Science of a Lost Art. According to Mr. Nestor by fixing our breathing we can fix many if not most of our physical and psychological ailments. Nestor is a science journalist, his book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, recently spent 18 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. I heard him on the Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris podcast a few days ago. Take a listen to the podcast and see what you think. I thought it was very interesting so, I ordered the book and may post about it again after I have time to read it.
The podcast made me think. Air is important to human life, but still, most of us do not think much about how we get it. Turns out how we get it is very important but not many of us think about this part. Water is important and unfortunately, my company sees water systems every week where not enough people are thinking about them too much either. The little things matter. A vent screen goes missing after a storm or the tank develops a small breach due to corrosion. Small things can make a big difference. If your water tanks are on a cleaning schedule of any kind they are being maintained better than the majority of small systems. We come across water storage tanks every week that may be inspected every year to meet state regulations but are rarely if ever, cleaned.
All water tanks should be on a schedule to be cleaned every 3, 5, or 10 years. If your last water tank inspection did not document how deep the sediment was in the tank, your next tank inspection should. Our water tank inspections use an underwater video camera and lighting system so we can document what is really going on in your tanks with NO Disruption in service.
By having a well-documented inspection done you can keep up with what is really going on in your water storage tanks.
Having your tanks on a cleaning schedule will let you breathe a little easier too.
