Water Tank Treatment
A Healthy Water Tank Is Just Tablets Away
Regular water tank treatment is necessary to keep your water safe for consumption
Over time, harmful organic materials such as biofilm, bacteria, fungi and viruses start building up in water tanks. This organic material can negatively affect the odour and taste of water and can be harmful to your health. The build-up of biofilm in pipes can also cause problems in the flow-rate and longevity of your system.
CleanOxide, which is pure Chlorine Dioxide, is the most easy to use and effective product on the market to maintain water tanks and ensure the water is safe for you to drink and use.
Rain Water Tank Guide
Many people around Australia rely on rainwater which is caught off the roof and stored in tanks for drinking, washing and many other uses. This can be perfectly safe, but does require a properly installed and maintained water catchment and storage system. Read the Natural Water Solutions Rain Water Tank Guide for important steps to ensure you have a healthy water tank. Read the guide here.
Recommended by the WHO
The World Health Organisation recommends and has rated Chlorine Dioxide as the most powerful water sanitiser in the world. It is a well known disinfectant for drinking water with many advantages over chlorination. Worldwide over 900 public water systems are using chlorine dioxide for water disinfection.
Safer than Chlorine
In comparison when Chlorine is used to treat water stored in tanks, it produces a number of undesirable by-products including Carcinogenic Trihalomethanes. Whereas Chlorine Dioxide does not produce any of these dangerous by-products.

Water Tank Testimonial
In August of this year (2017) we moved to our new home, this has only tank water for the household so before we started drinking it we thought it best to get it tested as the house had been vacant for a good while.
Our first reading showed the tank contained 11 CFU/100ml of Escherichia coli, confirmed Thermotolerant Coliforms and Presumptive Thermotolerant Coliforms.
I purchased a filter system that stated it removed such nasties without the use of a UV light which was one of the main suggested ways to treat the above bacteria.
Our next lot of testing showed it was now estimated 3 CFU/100ml and did not comply with drinking water guidelines. While the drop was significant we still couldn’t use our full tank of water!
I was reluctant to dose our water with heavy chemicals or to purchase yet another item that may not really do it’s job that’s when I came across the CleanOxide tablets. I called and shared my struggles to obtain clean drinking water with the team at Natural Water Solutions and they suggested the amount of tablets I would need to get the job done. Great service and being able to speak to someone was much better than being flicked emails with click the link information.
We treated the tank and got the water tested for a third time. Finally the results we were waiting for! Estimated <1 CFU/100 ml!!! This means we can safely drink our water which means no more buying bulk water which had become my norm!
Thank you so much for your assistance Natural Water Solutions team!
