CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

PIONEER AQUALINER Fresh®

Pioneer AQUALINER Fresh® Liners overview:

The AQUALINER Fresh® fabric is a woven polyethylene coated food grade fabric designed specifically for use
in potable water storage applications.

Exclusive Pioneer Aqualiner fresh antimicrobial linerThe AQUALINER Fresh® fabric is a multi layered reinforced liner material, the black water contact layer has been treated with  SANITIZED® SILVER TECHNOLOGY which breaks down the structure of potentially harmful microbes such as bacteria and algae that normally form on the surface of a water tank liner.

It is always best to set your tank up so that the first flush of the dusty roof is diverted and filters are in place to collect debris and dirt from being put into the tank. Even with this exclusive technology you may find your Pioneer tank needs a clean every couple of years.

 

 

Do not clean your tank unnecessarily, however if you have seen a large build up of silt or have noted a change in taste of the water or believe the water is contaminated it you may wish to clean it out.

IMPORTANT NOTE: AQUALINER Fresh®, as is the case with all polyethylene fabric, has an extremely low tolerance to chlorides and other cleaning/ sterilising agents.

Cleaning and maintenance of the Pioneer AQUALINER Fresh® Liners

SAFETY:
It is the responsibility of any persons entering a tank/ confined space to ensure that all necessary safety measures
are addressed and adhered to prior to accessing the tank.

PRECAUTIONS:

Footwear must be removed prior to entering ALL liner tanks to prevent stones etc coming into contact with the liner surface and potentially damaging the liner.
Ensure any sediment, and foreign objects are removed from the base of the liner prior to the walking on the liner
Any equipment brought into the tank must NOT be placed directly on the liner. Matting must be placed between any tools/ equipment and the liner.
Ladders to have feet and tops covered with sock/ rags to protect the liner

RECOMMENDED CLEANING OF LINER
Cleaning of liners can be safely undertaken by either of two methods:

Method ONE: Pressure Washer
A Pressure washer on medium pressure can be used to wash down the interior of the liner to remove build-up of sediment on the liner
Household dishwashing detergent may be added to assist in the breakdown of the build-up.
Wash down liner and flush out dirty water prior to refilling tank

Method TWO: Soft head Mop
Spray the wall of the liner with a standard garden hose
Use a soft head mop with clean fresh water from a bucket to wash down the liner
IMPORTANT: Ensure mop does not have exposed sharp or hard edges that may damage the liner
Household dishwashing detergent may be added to assist in the breakdown of the build-up.
Wash down liner and flush out dirty water prior to refilling tank

NOTE: The use of chemicals to clean inlet pipes or shock treat a tank is possible but thorough washing down of the liner after cleaning is essential. Exposure of the liner to harmful chemicals may void the warranty of the liner.
