How to keep your water storage tanks clean and free from bacteria!

Posted on January 16, 2018

water storage tankWater storage tanks are an essential reserve for any water distribution networks, which is why it is vital they are kept in the best condition and ready to use at all times.

One of the key routes for bacteria and mould getting in and nesting in your water storage tank is through small cracks and cavities, which are often unseen by the naked eye.

Over time, the bacteria can multiply and potentially react negatively with the water molecules. This can then release toxic chemicals, leaving unpleasant smells and tastes.

If left untreated, the bacteria can thrive and flourish in the environment, causing long-term damage and problems.


Although regular cleaning and chlorination is important in order to comply with water hygiene regulations, we always recommend a coat of Acothane DW to act as a protective barrier against future damage.

Acothane DW is proven to defy the growth of bacteria that are harmful to the water tanks internal structure. Not only that, Acothane also prevents further corrosion of steel and to all GRP surfaces.

There’s no longer the need to replace the entire water tank, which can be quite a costly project. A coat of Acothane DW would do the trick!
