How often should you clean your RO water tank
May 07, 2018
Reverse Osmosis water purifiers, commonly known as RO water purifiers are the best available home water filtration technology at the moment. Companies such as Livpure have introduced a new mode of water purification which is called RO + UV which uses both reverse osmosis and ultra violet treatment to remove both inorganic and organic impurities from your water supply.
But, for your home water purifier to work at its best, routine maintenance is required. One such component that requires cleaning is the water tank of your RO water purifier.
Ways you can prolong the RO water tank’s cleanliness
We all know that stagnant water attracts impurities, and so is the case with the RO water tanks or any other containers used for storing drinking and cooking water. When the water is stored for too long, environmental impurities tend to enter the water, making it smelly and develop a foul taste. Therefore, it is important that you ensure that the water flow is maintained in your home water purifier unit.
One way to do that is to use water directly from your water purifier, when thirsty or when using water for cooking. This way, the water inflow and outflow will be maintained, and water in your RO purifier's tank will be recycled. On the other hand, if you fill your water containers such fridge bottles or kitchen pots with RO water, the water in the purifier's container will stay there for longer periods; as you will first consume the externally stored water. Thus, raising the risk of the stored water (both internally and externally) becoming impure again.
Also, if you are going out of house for a while, then it is advised that you turn off the water purifier and empty its tank before leaving. This will keep the RO purifier tank clean and ensure that you can refill it with clean water immediately upon reuse.
Calling in maintenance to clean RO water tank
Other than that, sanitisation of your water purifier's tank is also necessary and you can call a service engineer for this task. A typical RO system requires tank cleaning, once a year. Buying a water purifier from a recognized brand gives you the peace of mind that comes with a great product, in terms of installation and service.
