Water Tank Contamination from Toxic Chemicals, Physical Material & Microbial Sources
While collection and storage of rainwater for drinking in plastic or concrete water storage tanks provides some of the healthiest and sweetest tasting water you will ever drink, they do have a potential risk of contamination from a variety of sources.
The list of contaminants is quite long but it can be broken down into the following types.These include;
- Toxic chemicals
- Physical Material and Solids
- Microbial Contamination.
The chemical contamination your water can be exposed to is fairly obvious.
It can be caused by pest and herbicides, industrial waste and pollutants as well as a variety of other toxic sources.
Some contamination is difficult to control. Sources like traffic pollution, industrial and mine emissions as well as poor agricultural practices for instance.
Contamination arising closer to home and controllable by you include your roofs condition and the materials used in its construction. Your guttering, the water pipes and the cleanliness of your water tank itself.
Even a poorly placed wood heater flue can add to the level of contamination in your drinking water.
In Australia we are fortunate, this type of contamination is not such a big issue as in other parts of the world. On the whole, our rainwater is very clean..
That said though, it is foolish to ignore where and how our rainwater finally gets to us.
And just because you are doing the right thing when it comes to keeping dangerous chemicals and pollutants out of the water cycle, does not mean that everybody else is.
There are many factors that influence how much cleaning your water tank will cost. There are things like the size of your tank, how long it has been since you’ve has it properly cleaned it, how dirty it is as well as several other factors that contribute to cost.
