Recently purchased a farm property with a Cistern, It currently is filled from the eavestroughs. Any suggestions for starting it up and keeping it running smoothly?

Farmhouse, Has not been lived in for a year or more, cistern has not been used. Should I install a filtering system for toilet/shower dishes use? Do I need to treat it right away, if so with what?
We plan on testing the water in it right away and seeing how it comes back?
Any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
