This can be due to you genuinely not realising the role a water tank plays in the supply of clean water tank through your taps. Another reason is that many of you do not see getting your tanks cleaned as a priority, when in reality it should be a top priority.
This is what a lot of tanks look like inside when not washed for a period of time.
You use water tanks for a wide variety of reasons in your daily life. For instance, you use the water from it to wash your hair and skin, fruits and vegetables, flush your toilet, brush your teeth, wash your dishes and cutlery and wash your clothes.
In addition, we use it in our cooking to feed our families, drink it, freeze it to make ice to put in our beverages, water our plants and feed our pets.
Especially with the COVID-19 pandemic, you wash our hands and bathe in with water to rid yourselves of germs and bacteria. In order to achieve this, the water needs to be clean otherwise you will be unknowingly washing with polluted water.
Imagine brushing your teeth and then without realising, rinsing your mouth out with water that has been contaminated with bacterial matter, the thought is quite disturbing.
Making sure your water tank is clean is a matter of good health and long life. Choosing the right water storage for your circumstance is also very important. Using and consuming water from an unclean water tank can house a variety of harmful microorganisms that can cause a variety of unpleasant water borne diseases and illnesses.
These types of diseases and illnesses can not only impact the digestive system, but it can also have detrimental effects on your skin and hair. It is just as important to shower and bathe in clean, fresh water than it is to drink it and cook with it.
Essentially your skin drinks too
The skin is your largest organ, so it should come as no surprise that your skin can absorb everything that you put on it. So, if you happen to be bathing or showering with dirty water from an unclean water tank, there is a high chance that your skin will be absorbing all the impurities from the dirty water.
These impurities can penetrate the skin and find their way inside of the body. In the long run, constant bathing or showering with dirty water can have bad consequences for your skin.
Such consequences can be bacterial skin infections causing painful and itchy rashes, leading to swollen, weeping skin and eyes. Regular cleaning of your water tank will mean constantly clean and fresh water will flow through your taps and shower heads resulting in brighter, softer, and of course healthy skin.
The dangers of stagnant water
Many can be ignorant to the fact that water running into your homes from an unclean water tank can contain a substantially large number of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and algae, to name a few:
- E. Coli
- Hepatitis A Virus

Stagnant water is a breeding ground for these harmful microbes! This in effect will leave dirty water in an unclean tank. Stagnant water after a long period of time can result in your destroying or reducing the life span of your tank.

This is all the more reason to get your tank cleaned regularly and treat it like a priority because it is, for the sake of you and your family’s health.
Don’t neglect your water tank
Another problem with unclean water tanks is that algae can start to form. Algae actively grows on the inner walls of water tanks because it can easily reach wet and moist areas and when it does, it starts to grow at a rapid pace.
