With increased health concerns globally, people are keen to enhance water storage safety through clean and secure tanks. For that reason, the inception of stainless steel water tanks has come a long way to reducing waterborne diseases. When it comes to cleaning metallic tanks, you need to adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you can monitor your tank’s hygiene, you are sure to lower the frequency of cleaning and enhance its lifespan.
Things you need to do to enhance your tanks cleanliness and increase its lifespan.
Use non-corrosive cleaners
The fact that stainless steel is ‘stainless’ does not prevent it from rusting, staining, and pitting. However, compared to other alloys, it provides higher resistance against destructive effects of exposure. Other than the corrosive impact of the external factors, rough handling is likely to scratch the inner surface and make it susceptible to rust. When it comes to cleaning rusty surfaces, you are likely to use an acid cleaner. It is important to neutralise the walls before using an acid to prevent further corrosion.
Applying a protective layer
Cleaning your tanks remove any microorganisms that cause diseases. Other than regular cleaning, you may consider protective measures that lower the contact between your tank and the cleaning agents and tools. To ensure complete blending of the self-protector with the metal, the surfaces ought to be cleaned in case they are stained. Also, the products work best on surfaces with no wax and greasy substances.
Install an automatic tank cleaner
The choice of the tank cleaning system depends on the design, size of the tank and owners ability to install. If your tank can accommodate the spontaneous cleaning system, it makes work easier and lowers the corrosive impact of manual cleaning. The system is designed to get rid of sediments and bacteria colonies keeping your water clean all the time. You can ask water storage experts on the different maintenance techniques, according to Rhino Water Tanks.
