What Are Cisterns?


Water storage tanks, also known as cisterns, are primarily used to store water for domestic and consumptive purposes in households or buildings. Cisterns are typically found in areas where a potable water source is not available in the community, the area yields low well water capacity, or the groundwater quality is poor. Cisterns are commonly used to store water for multiple purposes such as:

  • To supplement a low yielding private water well

  • As an emergency water supply

  • For seasonal/occasional use

The Role of Cistern Pumps


What makes cistern pumps the perfect addition to properties is the diverse functions. They are used to extract water from your underground cistern tanks to your home for your daily use. This makes them particularly useful for homes whose primary water sources do not produce enough water and water pressure to meet their requirements.
You can use them both as your primary and supplementary water source. Not only that, but placing them in low-producing wells can meet your irrigation needs and help you achieve a desirable water flow. They can be installed in homes, commercial and industrial operations, and agriculture environments.

Types and Sizes

Picking the right size of the tank is very important. When choosing a cistern, it's important to bear in mind how frequently you will be using it. Check out our cisterns and their capacities to see which one would best suit your needs. If you're unsure about which to pick, let us know; we would be happy to help you select the right product.

  • As it is installed underground, the water temperature will never be too high for irrigation purposes.

  • It is installed in an excavated area but the poly-storage tank can be installed inside the home for low-producing water wells.

  • Helpful to store water for domestic purposes, irrigation on farmland and much more
