Water Storage

Storing your water, whether in cisterns, ponds or in the soil, is paramount to an off-grid home.

Cisterns

Cisterns

Cisterns are one of the most reliable forms of storing water. There are several things you will need to consider: what type of cistern do you want, how will you keep it clean, where will it overflow. Those things done, you can make sure your home always has a reliable and clean supply of water.

Ponds are an effective and cheap way of storing a lot of water. This water can be used for fish, irrigation, animals and recreation. 

A healthy soil is a great way to store water on your property. Although it is not useful when turning on your tap, it will definitely help conserve the amount of additional water needed by your plant life.
