Cleaning potable water tanks and pipes professionally

Why must be cleaned?

During normal operation, inorganic and organic deposits accumulate on tank walls, inner pipe surfaces and other surfaces. Sooner or later, these can significantly impair the quality of potable water. If microorganisms are continuously entering, biofilms will form on surfaces. Although these do not initially pose a health risk, as they consist of mostly harmless potable water microbes, they provide a suitable habitat for potential pathogens such as Legionella and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. If these harmful organisms multiply massively, they also pose a health risk to consumers. Cleaning removes loose deposits and, if the right cleaning product is used, also solid deposits. The right chemical cleaning product can also break up biofilms and thus optimally prepare the potable water system for subsequent disinfection.

What must be cleaned?

Every system that contains or transports potable water or raw water used to produce potable water should be hygienically cleaned on a regular basis. This includes:

  • wells
  • potable water tanks
  • potable water pipes
  • house installations

When must be cleaned?

Potable water systems should be cleaned routinely but necessarily in the following cases:

  • before initial operation or recommissioning of the system
  • after repairs to the system
  • after maintenance measures or changes to the system
  • if contamination or exceeding of limits with coliform bacteria, E. coli, enterococci, legionella or other harmful organisms is detected
