When to clean your water tank?

Over a period of time, your water tank will build up sludge and muck that sits on the bottom and the walls of your water tank (especially if it has corrugated walls). There are many things which contribute to this such as:

  • wood fires (smoke can settle on your roof)
  • highly tree areas (sticks and leaves can fall on your roof)
  • high traffic areas (polution from traffic can settle on your roof)
  • some new roofs (they have a clear film which eventually wears off)
  • Animals (dead possums, birds, mice etc)
  • Mosquitos (which can lay eggs and breed)
  • Eucalyptus (from over hanging trees) etc

It is recommended that you clean out your tank regularly every 2-3 years to avoid such issues occuring. 

For further information you can download a copy of 'Your private drinking water suppy' which has been published by the Victorian Government Department of Human Resources which is a guide to cleaning out your tank.
