Cistern Cleaning Cost

We often get asked why the cistern cleaning cost is different depending on where the customer is located. The reason for that is the considerable amount of time it takes to get to and from a job site. We service areas where ferries (and lining up to board them) is a daily fact of life. Furthermore, we never really know how long it will take to clean a cistern. We charge a flat fee per cistern rather than a per hour fee, so we can take the time necessary to do an amazing job for you!

Please refer to our map below for cistern cleaning costs in your area:

If you are located outside of our regular service area, please contact us via phone or email. As our equipment is portable, we offer a fly-in service for very remote areas.

If your location is not in our current service are, please contact us, as we are in the process of expanding nation-wide.

Note: If the water condition is extremely dirty, it is sometimes necessary/preferred by the customer to not only clean the cistern, but also drain the remaining water after the cleaning. In such circumstances we can do a “clean & drain” rather than a regular cleaning. If you know already that you would like us to do this service, please let us know ahead of time, whether you order online or via phone. There won’t be an additional cost, but we have to take extra equipment.
