Tank Cleaning

Rainwater Tank Cleaning

Clients often ask, how regularly should I clean my rainwater tanks? Every installation is different and there are lots of factors to take into consideration. We would recommend the tanks are cleaned following installation before the system is switched on, and every 2-5 years thereafter.

Over time, fine sediment can build up in the storage tank and be passed through the system. This can start to damage the rainwater harvesting equipment as well as components in toilet cisterns. If this happens or should you find the rainwater quality deteriorates in colour or odour, it’s time to call RTC.



RTC can supply a tank clean package to suit your needs and budget regardless of whether you have a 3,000L domestic tank, or a 90,000L commercial size storage tank. This service includes buffer tanks linked to the system within the building too.

All RTC operatives carry CSCS cards and are confined space trained. For confined space work, the top person will always hold a supervisor CSCS card as well as being first aid trained, as required by large Facility Management companies such as Kier.

RTC take working in confined spaces seriously. The tank entrance and working area is always sectioned off appropriately with a permit in place. The tank entrant will always be equipped with a 10-minute emergency escape set and gas detector – with a second gas detector always present in the tank entrance. Our access equipment is inspected and serviced on a 6 monthly basis and we only use intrinsically safe lighting. All supporting service documentation along with risk assessments, method statements and insurances can be supplied on receipt of a purchase order.
