Abstract: This system aims to design and develop a prototype of an automatic system for cleaning domestic cylindrical water tanks. The proposed system includes a simple mechanism with centrifugal force. Household water tanks are supposed to provide safe water for cleaning, gardening, cooking, and drinking. The majority of the time water coming into the tank comes with dust and dirt particles. Over time, sludge or sediment may build up, contaminate water and cause illnesses in humans like diarrhea, cholera, amebiasis, typhoid, and gastroenteritis. Tank cleaning is necessary since the mud, dust, and dirt entering through water may settle at the bottom of the tank, leading to the formation of algae, and salt deposits that disturb the quality of water and hamper the flow of water through a pipe. It has been observed that the methods to clean water tanks are manual and a person needs to enter the tank to clean it. The water has to be drained out before handed, hence it is a tough and time taking task due to which cleaning of tanks gets postponed. If the tank is overhead, then it creates more problems for cleaning the tank. The benefits of this system are reduced human effort and time, avoiding exposure to chemicals that influence the health of a person entering the water tank for cleaning and reduced wastage of water.
