Contaminated water is the most common cause of illness to mankind. Around 60% of diseases caused to humans are water-borne with children below 5 years more susceptible. One of the most usual ways water getting contaminated is through water storage tanks - the cleaning of which is either neglected or inappropriate means like the services of a local plumber or sweeper are engaged.

Though Water Purifiers form an integral part in every home, they are not maintained in effective working condition due to regular maintenance and cleaning of filters. A clean water source enhances the life of the components of water purifiers, making them more effective. In addition to drinking, water is used for other household chores like cooking, washing & bathing. If the input water is not clean, we can still be exposed to water borne diseases.

The Genesis

In the year 1995 saw a bunch of filthy looking men, dressed almost in tatters, chewing tobacco getting inside a drinking water tank of a Co-op. Housing Society in an up-market locale of Pune, to clean the tanks. A few years later during inspection of underground water storage tanks in one of the luxurious Residential Colonies in Thane near Mumbai, we saw debris, sludge, algae accumulating including cockroaches and other insects settled all along the ceiling, corners and on the walls of the Tank. This ghastly sight itself was enough to trigger the need to develop and start a Professional and Scientific System to provide citizens a fool-proof and perfect system to clean water storage tanks.

At that time, the only people in the drinking water tank cleaning business were Building Watchmen and local Plumbers who used to either themselves do the job on or hire casual laborers to enter the tank, empty the water, scrub it manually and wash it again.

Crude & primitive tools like brooms, Sticks, Buckets, Bleaching Powder, detergents were used for cleaning. This had only a psychological effect on consumers of cleaning & sterilizing their tanks not realizing that the same people may have in fact ended up contaminating their Drinking water tanks.

Today CHENNAI TANKCLEAN, has set a benchmark for Cleaning of any kind of Drinking Water Storage Tank, whatever its capacity and wherever its location, ever since its inception in early 2000.

Maintaining Tanks

CHENNAI TANKCLEAN has prescribed a check list on the maintenance of water storage tanks. If adequate precautions are taken, one can ensure foolproof protection of the water inside the tanks.

  • Are the manholes and their lids maintained in good airtight condition?
  • Are the manholes of the water tanks securely locked?
  • Have you ensured proper sealing of the water tank near the inlet & outlet pipe lines connecting the tank?
  • Air exhaust pipes, if present - are they sealed and covered with proper meshing?
  • Are you periodically checking the overhead and underground tanks for leakage, seepage, or cracks on the exterior surface?
  • Is the pump room clean and dry, and not used as a store room or dumping room?
  • Is the area around the pump room and water tank, neat and tidy... and dry? (totally free from any garbage)

For best results, it is recommended that the cleaning of water tanks should be undertaken at least 4 times a year.

Presentaion Scenario

The most common way of cleaning the drinking water tank today is to hire the local sweeper or plumber. (This is many times done only after some people residing in that particular building complain of some health problems arising out of water borne diseases.) This plumber or sweeper in turn usually employs a casual laborer to get the tank cleaned.

This laborer, who, himself on most of the occasions has the most unclean and dirty living habits, enters into the tank with a brush or a broom, (the same brush or broom which is used for cleaning the gutters and toilets.) and scrubs manually the walls and floors and only sometimes ceiling of the drinking water tank, using the same dirty water that is remaining in the drinking water tank.

After this he physically removes water and the sludge from the tank using a bucket, mug and mops the tank to only show the residents the tank is clean. He sometimes uses bleaching powder or detergent ( which proves to be harmful in some cases ) for cleaning the tank.This process in the first place is very laborious and the cleaning is very ineffective as there is no guarantee that person scrubs the tank to remove the dirt is using his full strength.

Secondly, even after so-called thorough cleaning by them, the disease causing bacteria still remains in the tank giving full scope for their further development and multiplication in the drinking water tank, to make the drinking water risky for human consumption. Thirdly, the people who normally do these cleaning jobs are untrained casual workers who usually do not have any sense at personal hygiene and they themselves could be the source of contamination of the drinking water tank.

Against all above serious demerits of the prevailing conventional methods of cleaning the tanks the only advantage which we think probably is, the cheaper costs of such unprofessional cleaning. We feel this would be about 30% to 35% cheaper than our unique professional method of cleaning the tank. But if one has to think of the long term serious repercussions and consequences of the present conventional way of cleaning, it could definitely prove to be more costly in terms of ill-health and other serious medical problems of the people who drink water from such unprofessionally cleaned tanks.
