Question: I have a 10 ft by 10 ft by 6 ft high cistern in my basement. I have never used it and want to put a cistern liner in it in case it has a small leak. Also, I want to use a liner to ensure my drinking water cistern is free from contamination. Can you help with this?
Answer: Yes, we have cistern liners, and we'd be happy to tell you more about them. Our cistern water tank liner can be made with fabric to store drinking water and is ideal for improving and supplementing the supply of drinking water to island communities, remote villages, private homes, or housing developments.
Drinking Water Cistern Tank Liners
The fabrics used to manufacture of our pond liners, portable tanks and cistern tanks are FDA and NSF 61 compliant for potable water use. They perform well under seismic conditions and are relatively cost-effective and easy to use.
These liners are often built from the same fabrics we use to make our drinking water storage tanks. This makes them economical, durable, robust, and capable of storing different types of liquids.
Liner for Unused Cistern to Ensure Cleanliness
Cistern liners are excellent for storing drinking water but must be maintained and checked periodically. In terms of cleanliness, there are a couple of different options you could take to ensure that your tank remains clean. The first option would be to use a chlorine or other type of cleaning solution. For these solutions we typically recommend that the concentration of chlorine is not more than five percent. Solutions can be made from chlorine or bought from storage shops.
