Most potable water quality problems occur in storage tanks, not in the pipeline. These problems—common in chlorine and chloramine systems, warm or cold climates—can range from temperature stratification, dead zones and short-circuiting to biofilm build-up, loss of residual and, in northern climates, ice damage.
These problems occur because of the simple fact that water in reservoirs forms thin horizontal layers due to differences in temperature and pressure. One solution with proven results is to mix the tank thoroughly, from tank floor to water surface. Well-mixed water delivers consistent sampling, consistent water age and consistent water quality.
