Antibacterial Water Storage Tanks from Vectus and Microban®
With a presence spanning the length and breadth of the country, Vectus Industries Limited is one of India's leading innovators in water storage and piping systems. The company operates across 13 manufacturing plants and 5 depots, selling through more than 4,300 dealers and distributors.
Vectus laid its foundations with the production of rotational moulded water storage tanks. From there, it entered into the piping systems category, covering PPR and a variety of PVC piping. In 2009, Vectus made a technological breakthrough and became the first company to bring blow moulded water storage tanks to the Indian market.
Your Assurance of Purity & Peace of Mind
Vectus has always believed in constant innovation to keep up with the needs of a changing society. New-age thinking and a modern approach have helped the company establish many firsts, including antibacterial water storage tanks.
Commonly marketed under the brand name 'Ganga', Vectus roto-moulded water storage tanks are infused with built-in Microban® antibacterial technology. Microban SilverShield® is added to the innermost layer of the tank at the stage of manufacture and becomes an intrinsic feature of the plastic. The antibacterial properties remain active 24/7 and will not wash off or wear away.
How Does Antibacterial Technology Work in Vectus Water Tanks?
Microban technology works by disrupting the vital life processes and biological functions of contaminating bacteria, meaning they cannot grow or reproduce on the treated surface. The result is a water tank that stays hygienically cleaner and fresher in-between cleaning. It is also more durable, easier to keep clean, and less likely to break under recommended usage conditions.
Key Benefits of Vectus Water Storage Tanks Featuring Microban Technology
- Proven to harbor up to 99.9% fewer bacteria
- More hygienic to use
- Easier to keep clean and stay cleaner in-between cleaning
- Less likely to facilitate bacterial cross-contamination from the treated surface to the water stored in the tank
- Resistant to staining and bad odors
- More durable and less likely to crack or break under recommended usage conditions

In addition to featuring built-in antibacterial product protection, treated Vectus water tanks are also UV resistant and certified by RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) in Europe.
Antibacterial Water Tanks vs. Biofilms
Microban technology works to protect Vectus water tanks from the negative effects of biofilms. This means that if a biofilm forms on the surface of the tank and is subsequently wiped away, the treated surface underneath will still be cleaner, fresher, and more durable than an untreated surface.
