I Need My Tanks Cleaned & Chlorinated

Although there is no legislation demanding that cold water storage tanks should be cleaned and chlorinated annually, it is good practice do so.

Internal inspection of the tank also helps to decide whether or not a tank needs cleaning, as well as legionella, TVC and potable sampling (which must be carried out on an annual basis or six-monthly for tanks providing drinking water).

The Drinking Water Inspectorate does, however, demand that tanks providing drinking water be cleaned annually. Furthermore, tanks should be cleaned and chlorinated when the systems they serve undergo modifications or when a possible legionella outbreak is suspected to have taken hold.
