Over time, the water tank gets accumulated with algae, silt, bacteria, all of which can be harmful. Here is a step-by-step guide to clean your tank.
Empty the water tank. Drain out all the water.
Scoop water from the bottom of the tank. Since taps are generally located above the bottom of the tank, water doesn’t come out easily. Use a bucket to remove the excess water.
Remove the remaining water. Use a vacuum cleaner to suck all the water left behind and air dry the tank.
Prepare a homemade cleaning agent. Mix some Vim dishwash gel in a bucket of hot water and prepare a solution.
Clean the tank. Dip a scrubber into the solution and scrub the insides of the tank to remove all the slime and sludge possible. Once you’re done, use a power washer to effectively wash the tank and get rid of all the harmful bacteria.
You should clean your water tank at least once a year!
