The containers used for transportation and storage can be a high source of contamination. The transported or stored water may get contaminated due to many factors, such as poor water handling practices, containers damaged, cleaning difficulty (container with small mouth), the same container is used to collect water from the source and store water in the home, biofilm development, etc.
More recently, Cassivi et al. (2021) identified that the effect of seasonality on the household environment was crucial to the degradation of water quality from the point of collection to the point of consumption.
What practical methods and agents would you recommend to properly clean transport and storage containers? How can we clean a jerry can? Any ideas?
