Water storage tanks are without a doubt essential as when we get water, it can’t be wholly used in a go and we need to store it. To ensure a continuous supply of clean water to homes or commercial establishments, a water storage tank is a basic need. However, if not properly maintained, these tanks can become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, algae, and other contaminants.

This is where stainless steel water tanks and water purifiers play a crucial role in safeguarding our health. In this article, four effective methods for cleaning and disinfecting water from water purifiers are discussed while highlighting the benefits of using stainless steel water tanks.

1. Regular Inspection and Cleaning

To keep your water tank clean, you should inspect it often and properly clean it regularly. During the inspection, look for apparent indicators of pollution, such as algae growth, sediment buildup, or rusting. If you notice any problems, take urgent action to clean and sanitize the tank. Regular cleaning not only maintains the quality of your water supply but also extends the life of your stainless-steel water filter.

Here’s how you can clean the tank –

  • Drain the tank completely and switch off the water purifier from the main power supply
  • Open the top cover, and wipe the inside of the tank with a dry, clean soft cloth
  • Switch the power supply on
  • Let the storage tank get filled and then drop one disinfection tablet into the tank. Keep the disinfection tablets out of the reach of children. Do not eat/consume the tablet
  • Keep the top cover in place and leave the unit for 30 minutes
  • After 30 minutes, open the tap and discard this and the first filling water completely. Do not drink this water
  • Now your unit is ready to use. In case you notice any medicinal taste/smell, discard the tank of water fully & let it refill again
  • Please ensure that this disinfection process is carried out by the authorized installation person/service technician during the first installation and in every subsequent mandatory servicing of the product.

2. Chlorination

Chlorination is a popular method for sanitizing water tanks. It entails adding a chlorine solution to the water tank, which eliminates unwanted bacteria, and other viruses. Allow the chlorine solution to settle for at least 30 minutes in the tank to ensure proper disinfection. Finally, flush out the chlorinated water and replenish the tank with freshwater. Remember to use a high-quality stainless steel water filter to eliminate any remaining chlorine and pollutants from the water.
