Can anyone help regarding testing domestic water quality please?

After the recent flooding a few weeks back, it seems logical that some of the water has entered the underground domestic tank beneath my home, through the surface manhole cover.  Of course the water is never used for personal consumption but its a concern not knowing if the contents are contaminated and what action to take?

I have been told that emptying the tank could risk damage to the fabric of the tank and being underground and of course in the worst possible position I dont wont to risk that.

Best regards to all.

I guess it depends on how many filters you have between tank and house.  We have 3 full size filters before the water ever enters the house.  fortunately, our house is not prone to flooding and neither is the locality, but I would be very cautious if that were not the case.  its hard to spot contaminated water as even the clearest can still harbor dangerous pathogens.  My advice, empty the talk, refill and fit at least one additional filter. I think the chances of damaging the lining is very small, unless the talk is old, if so, may be best to replace it with an above ground installation.
