Are Sintex tanks safe for storing drinking water?Several municipalities and Panchayats have installed Sintex tanks for storing drinking water. The public patiently wait and take water whenever these tanks are full. Of course, not every one uses such water. Many use their own ground water, pumped through electric motors, and with bore well connection.
The question is: how safe are these tanks? These tanks do not seem to every cleaned. They seemed to be used for months together. How does one get to clean them? If they are to be cleaned, what is the frequency?
Members who know the scientific details may please respond. This question was raised in a local area, and we do not have any single person to guide us properly. The wise men do not want to give their opinion at all. Please do tell us what to do, based on your experience. Of course, I live in a totally different gated community and have RO water set up in my residence. So, this is for the community in a nearby area.
