However, if you take your garden hose, attach one end to an outside hydrant, take the discharge end and put it in the tank near where the water is drawn from, turn on the hydrant a small amount, and let it run wild (so to speak). It will keep your water from freezing up.
It will cost a little bit more in electricity, but less than the cost of hiring a plumber to come thaw your lines and tank so you have water. Plus, it is almost impossible to thaw out a cistern tank to supply your water.
So just a word to the wise here, take care, and have a GOOD WINTER!!!
Yours, in having running water all year around,
