Question: How does a cistern work and what type of cistern tanks should be used for different rainwater collection methods?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Cistern Water Tanks are used for rainwater collection and harvesting in the basement of homes or buildings but also outside. In this way residents but also commercial customers can save on city water costs and use rain water for water conservation.
Cistern liners and cistern water tanks are ideal if you have an existing concrete cistern, but it isn't functional anymore or the concrete walls are ripped or have broken pores.
Collapsible Cistern Tanks for Drinking Water
Collapsible cistern tanks offer the benefit that they fit in the smallest niches and can be brought in through small open holes of closed up concrete cisterns. Manufactured in the USA from tank material FDA and NSF 61 compliant for potable water use, they are ideal when a tank needs to have a large capacity and specific dimensions.
This type of flexible cistern tank is often used for drinking water storage for remote locations or where fresh and clean potable water isn't easy accessible. Our cistern storage tanks, made of durable and tough material, can be built in low profiles to fit underneath decks or high profiles for existing concrete tanks.
Cistern Water Tanks Made in the USA
The tank will be manufactured in flat dimensions and shipped folded up. Arriving at the final destination the residential or commercial customer only has to unfold the collapsible tanks as far as it has to fit to the existing hole used to bring in the cistern tank or to totally unfold it in an open existing concrete cistern.
After the cistern storage tank is unfolded it can be used for rainwater collection. To use it as a drinking water storage a water filter system, connected between rainwater collection and collapsible cistern tank is needed.
