BackWhy do I need to get my tanks cleaned, is it really an issue?

Yes, it is a very real issue. Unsafe drinking and household water can make you, your family and visitors seriously unwell. If your water comes from a water collection tank, it is up to you to keep your water safe and reduce the risk of water born illness from contaminated tank water.

Chances are high that your tanks will contain lead, pesticides, nitrates, giardia, campylobacter, e-coli and salmonella (in fact 90% of tanks test positive for E.Coli and Faecal Coliform).

How do I know if I have a problem or need it done?

The Ministry of Health recommend annual inspections and cleaning of your tank, if you haven’t had this done in the last year or two, your tank will need attention. The following are also signs to look out for:

* Have you, your family or visitors experienced diarrhoea, vomiting or frequents bouts of tummy bugs?
* Do you and your family experience fatigue, headaches, muscle and tummy cramps or generally feel unwell?
* Does your water occasionally taste and smell ‘funny’?
* Does your filter (if you have one) need changing more frequently?


Safe household water is vital for you and your family’s health and wellbeing.

Over time sediment begins to form a layer on the base of your tank, this sediment is a breeding ground and food source for potentially harmful bacteria that can make users of the water supply extremely unwell. The tank gets contaminated from ash, dust, sprays, chemicals and animal and bird droppings from your roof, gutters and overhanging trees. This sediment MUST be removed on a regular basis. Even if you have a filter, this sediment must be removed to ensure your filter is working effectively.

How does Safe H2O differ from other tank cleaning services?

  1. No abrasives. crossedWe don’t put a person inside the tanks for safety and access reasons, but also abrasive scrubbing and water blasting inside a tank can damage them.
  2. No more sediment or bacteria. We clean the tanks by suctioning out any sediment (which is where bacteria breeds) and remove any substances on the walls by using a very low level of food grade hydrogen peroxide if required.
  3. No need to order new water. Our custom-built filtration units filter your existing water that was in the tank down to 0.001 microns (which is smaller than bacteria). This means we’re not putting dirty water back into your clean tank, and you don’t have to order new water in.
  4. Scientifically proven. Our process has been laboratory tested and proven to be 100% effective in providing pure safe water.
