- Roof: regularly cleaning your roof is advisable, especially at the end of the dry months. In addition ensure that no tree branches grow over your roof, limiting the amount of leave that accumulate on your roof will put less strain on your filtration system. Ensure that your gutters are not clogged, and that there is no build-up of other contaminants.
- Filtration: ensure that the various components of your filtration system are not blocked, and frequently cleaned. If it is blocked, even slightly this can damage your system or cause overflow, which will result in a decrease in collection efficiency.
- Tank Inspection (Inside): Ensure that the inside of your tank is free from foreign objects.
- Tank Inspection (outside): Ensure that your tank is not damaged or leaking.
- Tank cleaning: This should ideally be undertaken by a qualified professional. This risk of personal injury is high.
- Pump: If you have a solar-powered pump, ensure that the photovoltaic panel is cleaned to maximise the efficiency of your panel.
- Water quality: Regularly test your water. If the type of pollutants change, this might require a change to your purification process.
