Area Specifics

Different areas South Australia and Adelaide require rainwater tank cleaning for differing reasons. All areas will experience dust settling on the roof and most areas will have some form of foliage and bird droppings that will land on their roofs.

Through 35 years of tank cleaning in South Australia, we have noticed certain areas have different/extra difficulties to overcome. We have devised a list of the main areas explaining what their individual needs are and some ways to combat these problems

Through rainwater tank cleaning in Mount Barker, Hahndorf, Balhannah, Woodside, Lobethal and Forrest Range; we have noticed a high amount of possum problems. There are various ways to stop possums from entering and eventually dying in your water system, but every rain harvesting system is different. Give us a call and we are happy to discuss how to stop such problems.

From rainwater tank cleaning in the Adelaide hills areas such as Stirling, Crafers, Aldgate, Norton Summit, Belair and Uraidla; we have noticed large amounts of moss growth on roofs. Systems such as the leaf eater and first flush diverters are essential in these areas.

Vermin infestations have been very high throughout South Australia recently. When vermin are present it becomes essential to have all rainwater tanks cleaned, Kangarilla, McLaren Vale, Macclesfield, Meadows, Echunga, Strathalbyn, and Langhorne Creek have been the worst affected. Gawler ,Virginia , Golden Grove, Two Wells and One Tree Hill and parts of the Yorke Peninsula have also been affected.

Coastal areas are majorly affected by Seagulls. Seagull droppings land on the roof and will all be washed into the tank carrying pathogens.into the water The main areas that need rainwater tank cleaning for this are Port Noarlunga, Hallet Cove, Aldinga, Seacliff, Brighton, Henley Beach, Moana, Normanville and Second valley.

In the areas north of Adelaide dust storms are a regular occurrence. Dust is a major factor in getting dirty sediment coming through your water system. Rainwater tank cleaning in Gawler, Salisbury, Elizabeth, Mawson Lakes, One Tree Hill and Two Wells; has shown the highest areas of dust accumulation. Water diverters are essential along with regular maintenance in these areas.

The recent fires throughout the Barossa Valley, have caused major problems with rainwater quality. The ash landing on house roofs has all washed straight into the water systems. Rainwater tank cleaning in the Barossa and surrounding areas Angaston, Williamstown and Nuriootpa is essential now. The ash is very fine making it easy to come through your pipes and block up filters.
