Stinky water problem?

Firstly, Happy New Year! Secondly, we have noticed an increase of rainwater tanks with smelly putrid water. This can often be attributed to anaerobic water (poorly aerated) or even bacteria in your rainwater tank. It is more common in the warmer months. Carbon filters dont seem to be too helpful...so what is the solution? Well, Davey Aquasafe or Puretec TankSafe are two products that use the process of oxidation to eliminate pathogens which include bacteria, viruses, algae and fungi. They leave no taste or odour and are approved for drinking water. 

Have a look at these two products on my Water Treatment -> Disinfection Systems page. Scroll down to the bottom of the page!

April is Filtration Month

With Summer now over and more rain on the way, our focus shifts towards water filtration. New rains can often result in capturing higher than usual amounts of sediment from the roof and gutters, and stiring up debris in your rainwater tank. We have filtration solutions for bore water, mains water and rainwater - whole of house or undersink - from sediment filtration through to water purification such as UV light and Reverse Osmosis.  Protect your family and your household applicances. Taste, smell and see the difference, knowing that your water is safer.
