What tank cleaning methods are available?
Methods used to clean the tank will vary depending on the unique circumstances of each tank and may include:
- Non-entry tank cleaning - this process works by removing all the contents of the tank and lowering in cleaning equipment, which pressure washes or uses expanding foam to remove all chemicals and contaminants, with progress being monitored by remote cameras, where necessary.
- Multipoint pumping (water) - in this cleaning method, pumps and suction tubes are used to remove water and contaminants from empty tanks, with the waste then being disposed of at a licensed facility.

Why is regular, scheduled tank maintenance important?
Correct tank maintenance and cleaning avoids costly damage from;
- Internal moisture build-up - over time this can cause the tank to corrode from the inside out leading to tank damage and seepage. Moisture can also have a detrimental effect on the tank contents.
- Sludge - solids that have entered the tank eventually get broken down, settle on the bottom and become sludge. If not cleaned regularly, this can impact the quality of contents in the tank and clog pipes. Sludge can also block filters and the passing of solids which in turn affects the operations of plants, vehicles and boilers.
- Microbial contamination - these bacteria grow when moisture is present in the tank. The growing organisms thrive in these conditions, causing contamination, blockages and filter damage.
