I just inspected an old 150 year old farm house, and found a huge concrete cistern below a trap door in the middle of the living room. It does not appear to have any active inlets, but did have half a foot of water in the bottom.
I reported its existance, and potential safety hazzard, (and the lead pipe to the bottom) but nothing further.
I’ve never seen one inside before, and would appreciate any comments you folks might have regarding these.
