Water Tank Cleaning

We specialise in water tank cleaning of rain water tanks, bore water tanks, commercial and stock tanks

Bundaberg Water is the regions specialist in water tank cleaning.  Gone are the days when you get into a water tank with a shovel , bucket and sponge. We use specialised industrial systems which vacuums the water tank , removing the sediment without stirring it up and as a result uses minimal water – ensuring you are left with the cleanest water available.

Australian Health recommends rain water tanks should be inspected and cleaned at least every 2-3 years to ensure that the water is in good condition for use within a house or business. Read more

time leaves, dirt, pesticides and herbicides, gum nuts and frog, bird, possum and other animals feaces and material may enter the rainwater tank as it rains and build up on the tank floor. Here they break down, dissolve, go rotten and contaminate the water making it foul tasting, putrid and unhealthy. This will greatly affect the quality of the water.

*Please note: Not every situation enables the full Five Step Water Tank Cleaning Process to be utilised. Your Operator will advise on the appropriate treatment processes for each individual/site specific situation.

The Five Step Tank Cleaning Process

  1. Sediment, leaves and sludge from the bottom of the tank are vacuumed & pumped out. Usually in rural areas this can be deposited on the ground away from the tank.  Sludge and debris removal from site can be arranged if needed.
  2. The water is then passed through a filtration system to eradicate any remaining foreign particles down to 20 microns in size.
  3. Hydrosil® is our sanitising product (approved under the Australia Drinking Water Guidelines as potable water treatment) which is added to control any harmful bacteria and virus that may exist.
  4. Water from the filtration and sanitation process is sprayed back into the tank providing further oxygenating off the water.
  5. Finally, water tests are undertaken to determine the pH level, conductivity, total dissolved solids and hardness of the water. Results are recorded for future reference with a detailed report given to the tank owner on completion.

Water Facts

Guidance in the Use of Rain Water Tanks

Water Tank Cleaning

Collection and storage of rainwater involves relatively simple systems. A reasonably low level of management can ensure provision of good quality water that can be used for a wide range of purposes including drinking, food preparation, bathing, laundry, toilet flushing and garden watering.

Australian Drinking Water Guidelines

Drinking Water Guidelines

The Drinking Water Guidelines is a very large document.  However we are more interested in pages 63 to 67.  They deal with small water supplies including caravan parks, houses etc.  The Framework is that it places emphasis on a preventive approach to managing water quality, with less reliance on water testing.

This small section is our initial commencement point when designing rain water filtration systems.  See our Rain Water Filters page here.

Rain Water Harvesting

Rain Harvesting

A common misconception about collecting rainwater is that all you need is a tank, gutters, a few downpipes and some rain. However, this approach, which we call “tanking”, cannot be relied upon to deliver the volume – and quality – of water you need. In contrast, taking a Rain Harvesting approach involves using tested and proven principles and equipment, so you get cleaner rainwater and lots of it for use in and around your property
