Well-designed systems, like Kingspan Water tanks, are low maintenance. All rainwater systems need to be monitored to ensure your drinking water is safe for your health and for the tank’s longevity.
With a regular low-key monitoring and maintenance plan you will generally prevent problems occurring.
Your Kingspan Water tank is made from strong steel and internal polymer coating, and is not susceptible to UV radiation, making it long lasting.
Regular maintenance is simple. We recommend you fully inspect your tank at least every 3 months.
- Inlet screen should be clean, free of leaves and debris
- Clean gutters regularly, ensure water does not stagnate in gutters as this causes algae blooms
- Clean the first flush water diverter regularly
- Inspect your tank regularly to ensure mosquito screens and light guards are working effectively.
Kingspan Water recommends that a full flush of all the tank water should be completed every 3-5 years.
Algae or smelly water should be always be treated to ensure it is safe to drink. We recommend Davey Aquasafe Liquid Solution. In severe cases, completely flush the tank or use a professional tank cleaner to service your tank.
