STEPS FOR CONSTRUCTING A CUSTOM WATER CISTERN

A cistern is one of the best ways of making use of rainwater for domestic purposes. If the cistern is integrated with a water refiner, then you can always be guaranteed safe drinking and bathing water. Here are steps for constructing a custom water cistern;

  1. Step 1-Excavate

This is the process of digging of a hole for your cistern. You can choose to hire professionals or do the digging yourself. A good cistern measurement is a hole of 12 feet in length and 8 feet in width.

  1. Construct the Floor

Start making a rectangular framework on the cistern floor with the use of stakes. Make use of 2 by 4 and ensure that you secure the material with stakes every two feet. Pour concrete on each framework.

  1. Construct the Walls

Construct the walls by installing the rebar wires together to form 1 foot grids. Then using a hummer bore holes into the cistern floor. The holes should not be deeper than 4 inches. With the use of a rebar in each corner, wire the grids set. Then pour the concrete into the mold.

  1. Disinfect the Cistern

Disinfect the cistern to ensure safe water all the time. Add two drops of bleach per gallon or 3 fluid ounces for every 1000 gallons.
