A functioning potable water system has many different subsystems and components that require inspection, general maintenance, and timely repair.
To keep stored drinking water healthy and safety for consumption, you’ll want to enlist the expertise of professionally certified and trained tank cleaning divers. Like most industrial systems, the breakdown or deficiency of a single unit can lead to an overall weakness in the entire system.
Keeping the different parts of a potable water storage tank sufficiently maintained protects the integrity and dependability of the entire structure.
It also protects the general health and safety of the public who accesses the water store…

Midco’s Tank Cleaning Divers
Unsafe drinking water can have disastrous consequences. Therefore, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets standards for tap and public water systems in the United States under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
As far as maintenance goes, our tank cleaning services are an indispensable component to keeping your potable water system safe and operative. Whether it is an on-grade, below grade, clearwell, pedestal, standpipe, or tower, Midco’s tank cleaning divers and equipment, used solely in potable water storage systems, will remove sand, sediment, flocculated material, lime and silt from your storage system.
All tank cleaning services can be performed while your system is full and operating in a normal manner, eliminating downtime and loss of storage capacity.
Tank cleaning divers wear industry standardized suits, so at no time does the body come in contact with the stored water. For added safety, divers are treated with State and American Water Works Association (AWWA) compliant chlorine solutions before entering the tank.
The cleaning of potable water tanks and towers is a very important health and safety precaution that is often overlooked. Much public drinking water leaves these tanks and towers and travels directly to the tap — hence, the imperative for tank cleaning services to prevent the transfer of pathogens, waterborne illness, or contaminating poisons, such as high concentrations of fluoride.
