Farley Purvis - Tank Consultants of Tennessee

TCT Tank Inspection Programs provide Public Water Systems in Tennessee with periodic inspections and reporting of their water system storage tanks. Satisfies Div. of Water Supply 5-Year "Professional" Inspection & Reporting Requirement.

TCT is a "Professional" Water Tank Inspection Company that has developed a Quality Assurance/Quality Control Tank Inspection Program that operates within AWWA Standards outlined in 3rd party tank inspection criteria, NACE and TDEC Regulations 0400-45-01.17,33,34,& 36.

Mission: Our goal is to assure quality and cleanliness of water system storage tanks to provide clean, safe drinking water for the public we serve.

[08/28/19]   This site was established to inform, educate and share information regarding the storage and handling of our public drinking water supply. I've been involved in water tank maintenance since the mid 70's and worked in the oil industry from 1985-1994 as an off-shore coatings inspector for Chevron and Exxon Refinery in Baton Rouge.

I have been inspecting water tanks in Tennessee as TCT from 1994. This site is meant to enlighten a general public who depend on clean, safe drinking water. The sad fact is, water storage tanks have most always been neglected.

The current administration has engaged the EPA to assure the quality and cleanliness of public drinking water thru new Regulations governing our nations Drinking Water Storage Tanks & Vessels. Trump has done more to assure the quality & cleanliness of the tanks that store our drinking water than anyone before him - That's a fact.

"From the tank to the tap" is a factual statement... there are NO FILTERS from water stored in these tanks to the taps in your homes and businesses. Most towns and utility districts do "What is Required" by federal, state or local authorities. Money, along with an "out of sight-out of mind" mentality is a primary part of the problem. Should the general public be aware of the truth ... THERE WOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM.

I know a lot about water storage tanks and if I can help, I will do so. 👍

A 250,000 gallon Elevated Tank.... roof hatch was left open overnight.... I encountered this owl when I entered the tank.... it was captured and safely released. ;) It's amazing what you find inside some of these tanks ............ Out of sight... Out of mind...

A 100,000 gallon steel elevated water storage tank... a municipal water system... no roof vent bird or insect screens... roof manhole cover not sealed... no padlock... no shields... no records of previous wash outs or inspections.

Elevated tank after draining and prior to wash-out & disinfection.

An elevated tank with a wax-type interior liner.

A 30,000 gal. tank in the mountains put into service in 1969... grease type liner... tank leaking. Drained, cleaned out, holes patched and disinfected for the first time in Dec., 2014 by TCT.

Referring to water quality issues... Pre-start conditions of a water tank not cleaned out for 22 years. This was in the floor after draining and prior to wash-out, inspection and disinfection by TCT.

A little humor mixed with reality... never a bad thing (y) :)


Flint, Michigan, Declares State of Emergency Amid Lead in Drinking Water Scare

It is my understanding, that in an effort to save money by getting water from the river...their water was contaminated.

nbcnews.com Tests have shown elevated lead levels in the drinking water after Flint began drawing and treating water from the Flint River.

High security padlock on roof manhole cover.

Cleaning of an elevated tank.

Roof of a concrete water tank in the mountains... Expansion joints failed allowing rain water and contaminants into drinking water supply... All records reported as stolen or lost... The wash-out and disinfection completed by TCT crew was the 2nd wash-out in 45 years. Expansion joints repaired by TCT maintenance crew.

[01/02/16]   Starting off this year counting my blessings and wishing everyone a blessed new year :)

I hope that this page sheds a little light on issues that have been in the shadows of ignorance, politics and money for much too long. Our drinking water should be a priority, not a political football to be punted down the field for someone else to deal with !!!

[12/20/15]   Our public water supply is stored in tanks and goes "from the tank to the tap" without filtration. What is more important than a clean tank to achieve clean, safe drinking water?
