Pillow Tank Cleaning

collapsible pillow tankQuestion: I interested in learning about the collapsible pillow tank cleaning process. I am looking at your 250 to 500 gallon bladder tanks and have questions about cleaning after use. I live in an area that is hot, which I suspect is a great place for mold and mildew to grow. Is there anything I can use to clean out this tank? Will the tank be clean when it arrives? Can it store drinking water?

Answer: When using a Collapsible Water Tank, there are a couple of different options you could consider to safely clean out this tank. The first would be to use a soft chlorine sanitizing agent. It is typically recommended that this agent is no more than 5% solution to ensure that there is no damage to the tank during this process. An alternative to this would be to use a an industry approved sterilizing agent. To find an industry approved material, the best way would be to contact a company specializing in this type of liquid.

When these tanks arrive at your location, they will be clean though not necessarily sanitized. It is not necessary to clean out these tanks before use, but it can be done with the chlorine or industry approved agent from above.
