We do cleanings for the residential, institutional and small commercial market. Below please find our pricing for residential customers:
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!
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.

Downspout cleaning (not to be confused with gutter cleaning) is available in conjunction with a cistern cleaning. It has to be booked at the same time as the cistern cleaning and includes disinfection of the downspouts with Hydrogen Peroxide.
