Tips for keep your drinking water clean

Your roof catchment system is your main source for clean drinking water. To maintain your home drinking water quality:

  • Keep your roof clean and painted;
  • Before cleaning, block the drain pipes so that nothing enters the tank;
  • Check your tank levels regularly, at least once a month;
  • Clean your tank at least once every five years;
  • Trim overhanging trees to prevent leaves from falling onto your roof and entering your tank;
  • Disinfect water using 1/4 cup of household bleach to every 1000 gallons of water. To determine the capacity of your tank, in gallons, multiply the tank length x tank width x tank depth x 6.25; and
  • When purchasing water, remember only buy enough to take your tank to about half, always leave enough space for rainwater collection
