Every drop counts

every drop counts when cleaning cisterns

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

Luckily, 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. Every drop counts is our motto in the fight of that battle.

Health Canada states on their website to clean and disinfect water cisterns once a year.

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.

T.E.A. (Total Environmental Advantage)

This isn’t your usual cup of tea. We call it Total Environmental Advantage (T.E.A.). It is calculated by adding the gallons of water that did not have to be dumped & wasted into the environment – currently more than 6.8 million gallons – to the gallons of water that did have to be drawn from the aquifer to replace the dumped water – another 6.8 million gallons of water.

Since April 17, 2013, when Environmental Cistern Cleaning Inc. (then operating as CleanCistern.Com) started operations, until May 31, 2024 – just 11 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 13,724,465 gallons (more than 62 million litres) of precious water – the equivalent of 124.7 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 for 26,829 kilometers – more than half around the world!

Thank you to all our customers who have helped reduce the carbon footprint.
