Installation and maintenance of cold water storage tanks in Nairobi
Everyone needs a water tank and everyone loves the fact that water is stored for future use. But no one knows: The condition of the reservoir will ultimately affect the quality of the water. Tanks used to be made of galvanized iron or asbestos. This means that people notice some unpleasant changes in the water over time. Today, changing times have led to the production of plastic water tanks, which is why you need a Nairobi Arrowtech plumber to install and maintain your cold water tanks.
Metal tanks and water quality
Also, the types of tanks used in the past were mostly galvanized iron, usually placed in the attic space and not moved during the construction of the house. Over time, these tanks can corrode from constant exposure to sunlight and rain, which can degrade the water stored in them.
A good tanks mean better water quality
Now with plastic tanks, the water quality is less likely to be affected by corrosion. While certain factors can affect the quality of the water, this only happens when the tank is uncovered or the lid is open.
