Water Quality not up to scratch? Find out why...

If you are experiencing an odour or a taste coming from your water, there are many external factors which may be contributing to this, such as:

  • Crop dusting can result in agricultural chemicals entering rainwater tanks. Agricultural chemicals may also drift or be washed into irrigation channels, streams and dams.
  • Harmful smoky residues from solid wood heaters can condense near flues on your roof.
  • Particles from lead-based paints or flashing on older roofs and gutters can be washed into rainwater tanks.
  • Tar-based roof coatings can bind other harmful organic chemicals (such as pesticides) to the roof surface and make it difficult to clean.
  • Runoff from roofs in urban or industrial areas can contain chemical pollutants from the air.

For a further list of factors that can affect your water quality, please click on the link to download a PDF from the Victorian Government Health. Alternatively you may call us on 1800 654 610 to discuss your options.
