Cisterns are used to supply water to a home or business. The size of the cistern required for your property depends on the size of your home and your water usage.
Egger Excavating can typically install a new cistern in one day. We excavate the area for the cisterns placement and all of the trenches required for the plumbing. Cisterns are generally buried around four feet below ground level.
INSTALL NEW CISTERNS
We install these cistern sizes: 2000 gal, 3000 gal, 4500 gal, 5500 gal, 8500 gal and 11000 gal tanks.
REMOVE OLD CISTERNS
We can remove or decomission old cisterns.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN INSTALLING A NEW CISTERN:
Together we determine the best cistern size and location for your property.
Our team will excavate the cistern site, install the cistern and piping, backfill, and add a load of water to the cistern for priming. Installation typically takes 1-2 days.
After a couple months, clay soil often settles around the tank. We offer the option of re-grading the soil around the cistern.
