Cistern Construction
Forest Lumber cisterns are real barrels. Both the side and the floor are made of only the finest top quality, 1 9/16 Inch thick, kiln dried, clear, 100% heartwood Western Red Cedar. The floor is supported by 4×4 cedar chine joists on 16" centers. This cedar base elevates the cistern sides 1 1/2 off the ground allowing proper air circulation under the floor. The integral construction of these cisterns allows them to be tower mounted. Inlets and outlets are provided to your specifications. The hoops are made from long lasting stainless steel flat bar. All the hardware is corrosion proof.

Our wooden water tanks have custom made; heavy 25 mil flexible, potable, plastic liners, with a life span of 25 years when properly maintained. These liners are drinking water approved.

The cisterns come with a modular roof design that are easily transported and installed. The roof panels are supported by a central aluminum hub which also provides ventilation. All vents are screened to keep out birds and insects.

They can be easily shipped in a pickup truck or a boat to remote locations. Two people can carry and setup the numbered pieces, even on rock bluffs and uneven ground.

Unlike conventional plastic tanks which are an eyesore our Cisterns are attractive structures which add beauty and value to your landscape.
Superior strength construction, and that will last a lifetime. The Western Red Cedar will not deteriorate from UV radiation like plastic does.
