Maintaining Your Water Tank

How do I maintain my tank?

 

Rainwater tanks require little maintenance. Taking these steps regularly will ensure top performance from your tank:

  • check and clean your gutters, roof and tank inlet screen
  • check and clean the overflow mesh on the tank. If this gets blocked over time, it may cause your tank to overflow and damage your tank base or surrounding area.
  • remove nearby tree branches which may drop leaves into the water catchment area
  • check your rainwater tank for sludge every two to three years which may collect at the base, and have it cleaned if necessary
