There are many different types of cisterns available for rainwater collection systems, each one with its pros and cons. We install many different cisterns since each job has different circumstances such as budget, available room for the cistern, and cistern installation access requirements. In addition, there are price efficiencies that make certain sizes of cisterns more “attractive” for a homeowner’s budget. For example, a 10,000 gallon cistern may cost around $8,000 but the 20,000 gallon cistern option may only cost around $12,000. For only $4,000 more, you get twice the size of storage volume. Of course, this decision is only available if you have the space to increase the cistern size to a larger volume.
There are many variables that go into sizing cisterns for rainwater harvesting systems. We always try to provide the most efficient option for our clients, all the while trying to provide the most aesthetically appealing option. While you can use some of the various rainwater collection calculators available online, they don’t really give you a way to calculate the best rainwater storage volume. Therefore, it’s almost an art form.
