“Water in a cistern may not necessarily be clean and potable.”
– Alberta Health Services, on Cistern Cleaning, March 2011
Alberta Health Services advises that cistern water should be sampled SEMI-ANNUALLY for bacteriological quality – looking for high amounts of Coliform bacteria! Your cistern can be a breeding ground for harmful organisms, sediment and sludge build up, and you are also at risk of illness if any insects or small animals fall into your water supply throughout the year.

(Please note, although the document does Not mention it, most residential cistern entry hatches are only 20 inches in diameter, meaning your cistern is classified as a Confined Space – without proper certification and personal protective equipment you should Never attempt to complete a cistern cleaning on your own)
