Contaminated Water – Escherichia Coli

Issue

Family members were regularly complaining of not feeling well, stomach pains and sometimes diarrhoea.

Water Supply

Rainwater tanks

Action

A sample of water was taken from the house and sent for laboratory testing.  The water was found to contain a type of bacteria (Escherichia  coli (E. coli)) that typically causes these kind of health issues.

Outcome

The first step was to disinfect all 3 rainwater tanks before installing a disinfection system to ensure no ongoing issues.
