We bought a house up North and we are looking to putting a bigger cistern in. I'm thinking about the above ground one at this time. Where do I go or what do I do to go about getting one and putting one in? Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are not there right at this time.

Are you looking for the black plastic vat or a concrete one?

At this writing I was looking for a black plastic vat. Now I believe the better way may be to dig a new well and have the laundry and toilets set up on the well and the rest set up on a the cistern we have. We have a 10,000 gallon cistern under the house now. Any good suggestions on who might be able to set that up for us.

You might check with Severo Guerro or Paco out of Victoria House.

You definitely need to separate the toilet/laundry from the rainwater supply. Then you can decide about the amount of rainwater storage. You should have some amount of well water storage too. so that you don't pump your well dry during heavy usage times.
Contact Frank Panton for excellent advice: 226-4195/ 622-5879
