Condition of Water Tanks in Kathmandu, Nepal

Kathmandu valley is the most populated as well as the polluted city of Nepal. According to research, Kathmandu is among the cities with the worst water supply. Major water resources in Kathmandu valley include a boring, jar, mineral water, and tap water. All these sources of water are first reserved in water tanks and are accessed by people. But, due to irregular maintenance of water tanks, water is contaminated and hence people suffer from waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, dengue fever, etc. which take heavy numbers of life, yearly. Contaminated water contains bacteria like E-coli and Campylobacter that have caused acute diarrhea, protozoan parasites like Giardia and Cryptosporidium, and many other viruses.

What are the reserved water problems?

Once water is reserved inside the underground and rooftop/plastic water tank, though we cover it from outside, it is exposed to the outer environment resulting in a spread of microorganisms. Reserved water problems can be listed as:

Accumulated sediments and build-in sludge

Harmful Microorganisms Contamination

Change in pH level of water

ph-level-of-water

Unpleasant odor

unpleasant-oder-dirty-water-tank

Do we have any solution?

Yes, definitely. To maintain water hygiene, water-storing tanks should be cleaned in a regular interval. It is important to maintain the right pH of the water to ensure water is safe enough to drink. Water tanks should be cleaned once a year or more often according to the situation. Therefore, regular inspection of the water tank should be done.

Benefits of professional water tank cleaning service include:

  1. Reduce in the growth of harmful microorganisms contamination

    Water is the main breeding place for bacteria, viruses, and other harmful germs. Impure water increases the growth of harmful microorganisms and thus, leads to diarrhea, cholera, and other dangerous waterborne diseases. After the professional cleaning of water tanks at regular intervals, the development of microorganisms inside the water tank is reduced making water fit to use in our daily life.

  2. Effective filtration

    Since many types of filtration systems are installed inside our house, if the water coming from the tank is unclean, effective filtration is impossible. These types of filtration only ensure protection from certain types of sediments and dirt particles. Hence, effective filtration is possible when the underground and rooftop water tank is kept clean.

  3. Increase in a life span of the water tank

    Impure water, sediments, and dirt present in water indirectly affect the lifespan of the water tank. To reduce the maintenance or repair cost and increase the lifespan of the water tank, the water tank should be cleaned regularly.

  4. Keeps away from water-borne diseases

    Waterborne disease is one of the leading causes of death in the present world. Contaminated water can cause typhoid, cholera, and other fatal illnesses. Professional cleaning of your water tank can keep your family away from such diseases

There is a saying, ‘Nobody can be in good health if he does not have fresh air, sunshine and good water’. To assure better health it is important to know what purity of the water we drink. Therefore, clean your water tanks and live a life with better health.
