When it comes to regular cleaning and desludging, water tanks are no different to septic tanks. Rainwater falling from your roof will often collect dirt, leaves, bugs and other debris, which can easily infiltrate your water tank, resulting in discoloured, dirty water.
This unwanted matter can cause pollution in your rainwater tank and have a devastating impact on the taste and quality of your water. Desludging carried out by the experts at Sludgebusters can reduce the risk of bacteria and will help ensure that your water does not become contaminated.
Signs that show your water tank may need urgent cleaning or desludging include:
- Water is no longer clear
- Water has an unpleasant taste
- Your tanks are located in areas where they may be more exposed to dust
- The area where you tank collects its water has a lot of leaf litter and other debris.
If you notice any of the above, the best thing you can do is contact Sludgebusters straight away, so that we can come out and clean your water tanks. Failure to have your water tanks regularly cleaned can result in illness from consumption of the water or a host of other problems.
Sludgebusters also carry out septic tank cleaning and swimming pool emptying and cleaning in Central Victoria, for towns including – but not limited to – Ballarat, Bendigo, Maryborough, Daylesford, Castlemaine and St Arnaud.
