As a result, our operatives are fully trained to understand the health issues which surround contaminated water tanks. Using the right amounts of chlorine, an engineer uses a mixture of high pressure jetting procedures. This leaves the vessel bacteria free.

One of the bacteria’s that IBCs can form is called Legionella. This substance is potentially toxic and harmful:

  • In temperatures of 20 to 45 degrees Celsius, the bacteria can multiply which increases the risks of Legionnaire’s disease.

Without fully removing the bacteria, water tanks can cause serious health issues. Even more chlorine used unsafely can be dangerous to humans, aquatics and the environment. Therefore, the operative removes the bacteria and leaves all water vessels in a safe condition.
