A Claremont resident says she discovered small red worms in the water from her rainwater tank.
Di, a CapeTalk listener, says she had her tanks installed a few months ago and hadn't been treating the water.
The water was used to flush the toilet, to clean the floors, fill the pool, and to wash the dishes, Di explains.
She says she's now concerned about the safety of water stored in the water tanks over an extended period of time.
