After 6 months of rain it is probably not on anybody’s mind yet, but every drop does count!

every drop counts when cleaning cisterns

On March 22 was world water day – a day created to take action to tackle the water crisis. Today, 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with feces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio.

In the developed world we do not have to live under those same circumstances. We have the technology and knowledge to keep our water source clean.

Health Canada states on their website to clean and disinfect water cisterns once a year. And it is not necessary anymore do drain a cistern to do so. An enormous amount of water can be saved, when Environmental Cistern Cleaning’s proprietary AquaSave plus™ technology  and methodology is utilized. This means it is not necessary to first dump all the water, then do the cleaning and then having to refill it again.

Since April 17, 2013, when Environmental Cistern Cleaning Inc. (then operating as CleanCistern.Com) started operations, until September 30th, 2017 – just 4.5 years later – we are happy to announce, that our T.E.A. (Total Environmental Advantage = water not dumped + water not having to be replaced from the aquifer) to date is 3,521,045 gallons of precious water – the equivalent of more than 32 million half liter bottles of water (and a heck of a lot of drops…).

If one laid those water bottles end to end, they would stretch right across Canada!
