Do you need a source of water for your new rural home? Is the well on your property no longer providing enough water? Then a freshwater cistern could be the answer! A cistern is a large tank that is used to supply a home with freshwater. The tank is buried underground in order to help regulate the temperature of the water. This will help keep the water cool in the summer and prevent it from freezing in the winter. Water is then delivered by truck periodically to fill the tank. Ardalta Vacuum Truck Services is able to install and clean cisterns at Edmonton area homes, helping to provide your family with freshwater for drinking, cooking, plumbing and laundry.

Why Do I Need a Freshwater Cistern?
Cisterns are mainly used in remote rural areas that do not have access to water supplied by a local government or utility service. If you are building a home in one of these less populated areas, a water cistern is an alternate option to digging a well. Many people opt for installing a water cistern if a there is not viable well water on the property or if a well will not provide enough water for the household’s needs.
Some people also prefer the quality of water that comes from a cistern versus water from a well. It is possible that some areas simply do not have good well water available. Underground water sources utilized by a well can be high in sodium or iron bacteria which can cause staining on plumbing fixtures or your laundry. In this case a freshwater cistern would be your best option.
Cisterns are just like other underground tanks in that they have to be cleaned and sanitized periodically to keep your water source fresh and safe. We can provide this service at Ardalta. In our many years of service we have found that most cisterns require cleaning every three years. Though the tanks are meant to keep dirt, rodents and other contaminants out, it is possible that some find a way in. Our services will ensure that all of these are removed and give you peace of mind knowing your water is clean and safe to drink.
