We can get your rainwater tank back to supplying fresh and safe water

SA health recommends rain water tanks to be cleaned every 2-3 years, in some cases more often! 

Over time dirt, leaves, animal faeces, sometimes even animals get into the tanks, decompose and contaminate the water

Our cleaning process involves using pumps to vacuum the sludge off the bottom of the tank, water is required for this but we use as minimal as possible.

These images show the thick layer of sludge that accumulates on the floor of your tank being vacuumed out, and after cleaning.

We can also do a full tank cleanout which requires emptying the tank and high pressure cleaning out of all sides within the tank.

Tank Care SA also remove old tanks, install new tanks, water filters, first flush diverters, clean gutters and all other tank maintenance.

Tank Cleaning

Our cleaning process involves using pumps to vacuum out the sludge layer off the bottom of the tank (some water is required in your tanks for this, but we use as minimal amount as possible) This dirty water is then pumped out either onto your garden/lawn (very good nutrients for it!) or into your stormwater drain. After cleaning the tank we then recommend a water treatment by Natural Water Solutions, to kill any bacteria, viruses, fungus, algae, insect nests etc that may be growing in your tank! This treatment also neutralises any unpleasant tastes or smells from the water.

Every household should get their tanks cleaned regularly no matter how ‘clean’ the water seems. Even with the use of some filters, pollutants can still make their way into the tanks water.
