Exemption of obvious risk and danger
In all cases we strongly recommend you always place a covering over the DIY rainwater cistern we mention on the Site.
On the Site we mention the possibility to build a rainwater cistern yourself without a covering;
- to provide accurate information of the most affordable way to construct a DIY rainwater cistern.
- as a starting point to your investment. When you need or want to choose another way of covering the rainwater cistern. Other than with the wooden deck example, we provide.
Design and Installment of Cistern without a cover is subject to your local laws and regulations
A rainwater cistern with an open cover is like a garden pond or a swimming pool. Therefore, the same safety precautions should be observed as for a pond or a swimming pool. You should check with your local authority to what regulations you have to comply to. If you wish for your rainwater cistern to be an open one.
An rainwater cistern without cover is to be considered as open water. Therefore, such a configuration is to be considered dangerous. Especially for anyone who cannot swim, or isn’t otherwise able to swim. Hence, persons who cannot swim should be accompanied by people who can. Especially when close to water.
An open rainwater cistern is also more susceptible to contamination from animals entering. And also more prone to possible drowning of animals. Lastly in this list specific warnings, an open cistern isE more susceptible to unwanted forming of algae bloom.
Therefore, we always recommend to cover the rainwater cistern.
