Wherever water is limited in the Santa Barbara region, DTL Excavating offers cistern installation of sizes ranging from 1200 gallons (5300 liters), to 6000 gallons (27,000 liters). Constructed in solid concrete, rainwater cisterns provide a basic water purification system that ensures health and safety. Whether used as a primary or secondary water source, we are equipped to provide various installation options that can be adapted to existing plumbing systems, depending on specific needs.
Expert excavation for cisterns
Experts in excavation, our specialized workers will carefully determine the design and placement of a cistern on your Santa Barbara property. DTL Excavating crews are experienced at digging to the precise depth required, as well as adding small trenches to optimize water flow and safely incorporate electrical pathways, if necessary.
Cistern operation and options for Santa Barbara
Cistern installation for a Santa Barbara residence typically requires four feet of excavation to keep water clear and protected from temperature fluctuations. Generally, an underground cistern pump is linked to the pressure tank and control switch located inside the house. DTL Excavating technicians can advise you of alternative options according to your needs and budget.
Adapted to municipal services
Although cisterns are usually used when there is no feasible well water or municipal services, local services can be adapted to a low pressure pipe system as an alternative for environmentally conscious property holders in Santa Barbara. We offer useful information regarding the many options that a modern cistern can provide.
Operating in the Santa Barbara region for many years, DTL Excavating offers experienced knowledge regarding sizing, placement, and other factors that help you determine whether installing a cistern is the ideal choice for your needs.
