Electric Mixers for Potable Water Storage Tanks

July 24, 2012

The GridBee GS-12 family of electric mixers for potable water storage tanks now includes models with 120-volt and 240-volt motors. The mixers rest on the floor of a potable water storage tank, constantly circulating water to evenly distribute disinfectant and kill bacteria. Pulling water right off the tank floor ensures the most efficient mixing of important boundary layers — without disturbing the sediment — providing uniform distribution of disinfectant and uniform water age, as well as preventing stratification. Thorough mixing also eliminates ice damage to tanks in cold climates.
