Why Clean Your Water Storage Tank

Do you want safe water?

Well of course you do…who would prefer dirty water?

The ultimate question is… How do you ensure your family has clean water?

We have placed various real life Polytank videos on our Facebook Page and the first reaction is one of two things – either the videos are fake or this cannot be the state of my water storage tank! Let’s think about this for a moment. Arguably the most used item daily is water from a storage tank.  Probably a Polytank, Sintex, underground water reservoir or similar. Water is stored directly from a water company; from a local tanker, a borehole or rainwater harvesting.

One wonders if preventive measures at a very low cost is not more sensible than the reactive option of visits to the doctor. Ignorance they say is no excuse – You must be aware and also act. A challenge is to take a peek into your water tanks and touch the inner surface with your fingers and see the result. Thats if you haven’t seen cobwebs, insects or something worse already! We recommend you wash your water tanks at least twice a year; Check tank has a secured lid; ensure no leaks and purify regularly. At FF we are Polytank and Sintex tank cleaning and repair specialists.

Each one of these options comes with its own safe water hazards and of course you use the water from these sources to cook, shower, brush your teeth and so on.

I have heard the argument that: 

“we definitely don’t drink from it”,

but can this be true of our children who are none the wiser and drink water directly from taps ever so frequently, or the drops you swallow whilst brushing your teeth?

Ehmm or water for ice cubes we put in the fridge.

The connection between consistently using contaminated water stemming from unwashed tanks and the high rate of waterborne diseases is hard to ignore.

Its wise to ensure no leaks to save on water bill.
