- Improve water quality
- Reduce costs
- Prevent ice damage
As the water in a storage tank ages, levels of residual disinfectant can drop and the tank can stratify, allowing bacterial growth to occur and increasing public health risks. Warmer temperatures can lead to disinfectant loss and ammonia buildup, creating nitrification. Freezing temperatures can lead to ice formation and significant tank damage.
Thermal layers can develop in the tank, trapping older water at the top.
- Water quality
Water age and loss of residual disinfectant can lead to bacterial growth.
- Tank freezing
Ice formation can cause further loss of water quality and result in tank damage.
