A few things to keep in mind when selecting the tank you want are to think of what size you will need, how much water you can catch, where the tank is going to sit in regards to your home and what site preparations need to be undertaken.

So why pick Bushman’s when there are so many other tank providers? Bushman’s are experts in safe delivery and installations, have high standards of after sales service and a ten year guarantee. Water tanks must be maintained to keep the tank and water inside it clean. The amount of maintenance is periodic and minimal but to help you out here are some simple steps
that could be followed;
• Check the screens to ensure they are in good condition to prevent rodents, birds and other animals, including mosquitoes, from getting inside the tank
• Minimise organic matter build up by cleaning gutters and down pipes
• The gutters and screens should be cleaned two to three times per year, depending on the amount of leaf litter and other material around the building. Between big rainfalls clean gutters and screens. Flush out first flush systems.
• Clean out sludge in bottom of tank every few years
If your tank is contaminated, under no circumstances use kerosene. Kerosene is corrosive to plastic tanks. Avoid other oil based products in plastic rainwater tanks.
Use chlorine if you need to kill pathogens. For more information get down to Kinsela Farm Supplies.
