Water Storage Tank Chlorination
Water storage tanks are an essential part of any water distribution system, providing a reliable source of water for households, businesses, and communities. However, over time, these tanks can become contaminated with harmful bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that can pose a serious threat to public health. That's why water storage tank chlorination is a critical component of any water management program.
Water storage tank chlorination is the process of adding chlorine to a water storage tank to disinfect it and eliminate harmful microorganisms. Chlorine is a highly effective disinfectant that can kill a wide range of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. When added to a water storage tank, chlorine reacts with any microorganisms present in the water, killing them and rendering the water safe for consumption.
