Some tips to ensure that your tank is hassle free..

  • Periodically clean the interiors of your tank and remove debris, dirt from the interiors. 
  • Check if the rubber washers are in a good condition. Replace them if they seem to have worn out.
  • Once in a while let the tank drain out completely and let the unit dry for a while.
  • Do not keep any heavy item on top of the tank lid.
  • If any part is not operation – replace immediately as you can save precious water.
  • Wipe clean the tank with a cloth to prevent salt stains.
