According to the British Standard’s guidance on potable drinking water cisterns BS6700, all drinking water storage cisterns must have a rigid, close fitting and securely fixed cover which is not airtight but excludes light and insects from the cistern, fits closely around any vent pipe, must be made of a material which will not shatter or fragment when broken and shall not contaminate any water which condenses on its underside. The cover shall not in any way impact on the taste, colour, odour or toxicity to the water, nor promote or foster microbial growth.
