Let’s be honest here. Much like the middle child, certain home maintenance gets neglected. But we all need a bit of love to function properly, so let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you need to give your water tank a bit of attention.
According to a Dubai based study,18 out of a total 40 tested household water tanks contained different types of bacteria with concentration levels exceeding local and international standards. That tells us that nearly half of home owners in Dubai are simply unaware of how important it is to maintain their water tanks.
When leaving the water tank unchecked, unwelcome squatters like bacteria, algae, fungi, mould, mildew, amoebic cysts, and even microscopic worms, larvae and other undesirable animals and plants can be getting cozy inside your water tank. This opens up the door for your water to be contaminated.
Due to its dark and cool conditions, neutral pH and moisture, your unkept water tank may be housing the prolonged survival of those nasty pathogens. The World Health Organization found that some water-borne viruses like Hepatitis A, for example, can remain active in water supplies for a long time.
To best protect your water tank from any contamination, Dubai Municipality recommends that you clean out the tank at least every 6 months.
