We clean Water Cisterns

The Environmental Solution to Cistern and Reservoir Cleaning

Cistern cleaning is vital to your health

Cistern cleaning and maintenance is of vital importance. If you don’t have an engineered rainwater harvesting system you will most likely have a lot of sludge and yucky stuff at the bottom of your water tank.

With our exclusive AquaSave plus technology we can now clean your cistern without removing the water. Most noteworthy, we don’t use any chemicals or cleaning agents. Imagine your entire water cistern – inside and out, floor, walls and all – getting a good scrub down. Depending on the application, we utilize different technologies and methodologies.

Our method could possibly save you several hundred dollars over traditional cistern cleaning methods which require water replacement.

  • Safe for the Environment
  • No Chemicals or Cleaning Agents
  • There is no need to empty the cistern before cleaning

So what do other people think of our services?

I contacted CleanCistern on a weekend to make an appointment to have my cistern cleaned. They contacted me on Monday morning and had their technician on site later that same morning. He was personable and efficient and quickly got to work. He needed to wait for two days to allow some of the cloudiness in my water to settle. He returned two days later and finished the job. This was at the end of the workday but he took the time to make sure the job was finished properly.

Good evening Sabina & Geoffrey with apologies for an email so late in the day.

I want to let you know that the cistern cleaning at the Grenley residence today went very, very well.  Kaman is a steady and diligent worker, there were times I wondered if he was even going to take a break; thankfully he did.  Having seen the condition of the cisterns prior to and subsequent to their cleaning I have to say Kaman achieved the near impossible in cleaning them to the extent he did.  Having such a competent and  meticulous employee speaks highly of your company.

Kaman also informed me, much to my surprise, that the cisterns are made of concrete; I had assumed they were large plastic vessels.  Hopefully my incorrect assumption and description of the cisterns to you did not cause any problems for you.

Many thanks for a job well done. … Of course you can post my comments but also please let Kaman know how much I appreciated the work he did and his ethic.  He really didn’t stop very much the whole time he was at Neal’s and he did a great job.

If I hear of any other people requiring a cistern cleaning service I’ll be sure to recommend your company.  Thanks to you and Geoff for the service.

Have a great weekend.

Dear Geoffrey and Sabina:
I want to thank you for the excellent work your company did in cleaning our two large concrete cisterns last week. As the combined  capacity of the two cisterns is 17,500 gallons and they had not been cleaned for a number of years I realize this was a big and somewhat difficult challenge for you.
I appreciate your very prompt service and that you accommodated our schedule to complete the job while we were traveling in order that there was no interruption in our water supply. Your professional approach and your unique system were excellent and I will be happy to recommend your service to my friends and neighbours.
I am pleased to report that now the quality of our cistern water has never been better!
Dennis Pennell, Gabriola Island, B.C.


Hi Geoffrey,

Just a note to say a big thank you for the splendid job you did, cleaning our cistern. You went beyond the call of duty to ensure that you had done a good job. Which you did, more than 100 percent. Thank you again, we are so pleased with our pristine clean cistern. By the way, the water test that was done subsequently, came up absolutely clear and clean, nothing in the water, just sweet tasting lovely water! 

Ina and Johan Nienaber,  Gabriola Island.

Confined Space

Don’t get yourself into a pickle! New Government regulations prevent anybody from entering a confined space (i.e. cistern) without formal protocol. A breathing apparatus and adhering to major health & safety precautions is needed. The law states the rules clearly. As a result you have to be Confined Spaces trained if you are working in a confined space.

How do we clean cisterns?

At Environmental Cistern Cleaning Inc. we don’t (need to) enter the cistern. Because the cleaning technician cleans your water tank remotely from the outside. In addition, we perform all cleanings with the water remaining inside the cistern. There is no need to empty it first, in fact, you can save all that precious water!

Please note: As the dirt is sucked up through our machine, there is some disturbance of the water. This will result in some particles distributing in the cistern. After a few days the water settles and is “clear” again.

Save money… get your cistern cleaning done now!
