Abstract: This paper proposes to design and develop a machinery for cleaning domestic rectangular water tanks. It is known fact that cleaning of water tank is a meticulous and labor intensive task. It is very important to regularly clean and maintain the water tank to keep the water borne diseases from spreading. The water in storage units are used for both domestic and industrial purposes. The presence of toxic substances in water can also cause skin diseases. This can be avoided with the use of an efficient tank cleaning system. The system consists of a machine designed with a movable body and an extendable shaft mechanism supporting a rotating brush. The movement of shaft and brush scrubs the walls of the tank. A sprinkler mechanism rinses the sediment deposits from walls of the tank and additionally a vacuum device ingests the sludge from the floor of the tank. The object of this machine is to reduce the overall time and effort invested in the cleaning of water tanks.
