Summer is Here!

July 23, 2020 1 comment

Temperatures are rising! Summer is here and boy can we feel it! Some of us have ways to beat the heat but one thing we all have is WATER! It fills the pools, cools us down, and can quench our thirst!

It would be nice if all water was safe from bacteria and viruses. But the truth is that as the water demand increases, the more tanks and tower will be refilled from it sources. Just a little sediment can become a big problem. If left in a tank or tower sediment can be a breeding ground for many microbes, bacteria, and viruses. So with summer here the temperatures can play a big role on whether or not you water is safe from these breeding bacteria.

Just an increase of TEN degrees can double the speed of the bacteria growth! So as we begin to see new record high temperatures it is even more important that we try to keep tanks and towers clean of sediment.

Removing sediment from potable water tanks and towers can also help utilities use less chlorine. Since cleaning tanks and towers of sediment, our customers have found that their chlorine costs are reduced because the chlorine is no longer losing the war with the bacteria and microbes that were growing in the sediment.

The fact is removing the sediment from your water tank may prevent a disaster before it can ever start. Do not have the mind set of “out of sight and out of mind.” If an accumulation of sediment is found, don’t think of it as “just a little dirt.” Know that it is a place that can allow contaminants to compromise the entire water supply and the health of the community.
