Cistern installation

Cross Excavation installed our new concrete 500-gallon rain-water cistern underground, so we'll have a non-frozen water supply for the cold months. This weekend we ordered the hand-pump to extract the water from the cistern.

Next we'll hook up the gutters from the bath-house and the wood-shed to fill the cistern.

We already have a Sawyer water filter to make the rain-water potable, and have been drinking the rain that we collect in our above-ground barrels.
