Screening tanks for protection from the infestation of insects and mosquitoes is now a necessity according to the rules of the council. However, every boon comes with a bane that can drive you mad beyond a certain point. If you own a tank and have installed screening to it, you should be aware of the new problems it can bring. Water could overflow from the top of the tank and land on areas other than through proper drainage system. By not maintaining the screens from being clogged, such serious issues could come your way. Foundations could erode and lead to depletion of the fine soil in your area, or it could also affect your neighbors during the torrential downpours.
Ensuring the supply of high-quality water for your daily needs is necessary so that everyone stays healthy. If you use the water from the unmaintained rainwater tanks for cooking, bathing, and drinking, it could lead to many more issues. So, you must pay attention to these details that keep your water consumption healthy and safe. The process isn’t as hard as you may have conceived it to be. You only need to conduct a general inspection of your strainer, tank, roof, entry points, and gutter every six months and clean out the strainers by fixing any problems with every part of the tank.
If you tank doesn’t have a self-cleaning system, you need to inspect the inside of it every 2-3 years. By doing this, you will be able to find how badly the sediment has built up and accumulated at the bottom of the tank as sludge, which has to be cleaned by yourself or with some expert help. Incorrect overflow of water from the top of your rainwater tank can be prevented if it has been installed correctly. Tank inspections have to be performed routinely to check if the overflow is being fed correctly into the stormwater drainage.
