Farming is a big business, and it produces a lot of waste. That waste needs to be disposed of in a way that doesn't contaminate the environment or endanger public health. One common way to dispose of agricultural waste is by holding it in a farm effluent holding tank which you can buy from KlipTank.
It's important to keep your farm effluent holding tank clean so that it can discharge properly and without creating environmental problems. In this article, we will provide a step-by-step guide on how to clean your tank.
1. Remove all of the waste from the holding tank.
2. Disconnect the rainwater outlet hose and drain the tank completely so that there is no standing water in it when you reattach it later.
3. Fill your holding tank with fresh water and pump out any standing water or air that may be trapped in the top of the tank by using a garden siphon hose. This will prevent air from entering your tank when you reattach it later on.
Once you have cleaned your farm effluent holding tank, be sure to keep it clean and free from debris so that it continues to function properly.
If you've been following the advice in our earlier articles on cleaning your farm effluent holding tank, but the tank still looks dirty, here's what you should do:
1. Clear all debris from the top of the tank using a water spout or broom. This will help to remove any surface dirt, leaves, or branches that may have gotten into the tank.
2. If there is still soil or leaves in the tank, use a bucket to fill it halfway with water and dump it out. This will loosen any soil or leaves that are stuck in the tank.
3. Use a hose to rinse the entire tank clean. Be sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.
4. Let the tank dry completely before refilling it.
