A water tank is a container for storing liquid. Water tank needs as old as civilization, to provide a reservoir for use in many applications, drinking water, agricultural irrigation, fire suppression, agricultural farming, both for crops and livestock, chemical manufacturing, food processing and many more other uses. water tank parameters include the overall design of the tank, and the choice of building materials, coatings. Different materials are used to make water tank: plastics (polyethylene, polypropylene), fiberglass, concrete, stone, steel (welded or bolted, carbon, or stainless steel). potting soil also serves as a reservoir. water tanks are a great way to help the developing countries to keep the water clean.

Throughout history, wood, ceramic and stone was used as a water tank. All containers occur naturally and some artificial and some tanks were still in service. Indus Valley Civilization (3000-1500 BC) using barns and water tanks. medieval castle needed water tank for the defense to withstand a siege. A wooden water tank was found at Año Nuevo State Reserve (California) is returned to the function after being found completely overgrown with ivy. It was built in 1884.

ground water tanks, made of carbon steel coated, can receive water from water wells or surface water, so that large volumes of water to be placed in inventory and used during peak demand cycles.
high water tank, also known as the water tower, take the pressure at the outlet of the ground-level one per 10.2 cm kPa or 1 psi per 2.31 feet of elevation. So the tank raised 20 meters create about 200 kPa and the tank is 70 feet high create about 30 psi discharge pressure, sufficient for domestic and industrial needs of inmates.
Vertical cylindrical dome top of the tank can hold 200 liters or fifty gallons to several million gallons. horizontal cylindrical tanks used to transport low-profile because they create a low center of gravity helps maintain the balance of the transport vehicle, trailer or truck.
A hydro-pneumatic tanks are typically horizontal pressurized storage tanks. Pressurizing reservoir water creates a surge free delivery of water put into the distribution system.
In the design of water tanks or containers must not be harmful to water. Water is vulnerable to a number of negative environmental influences, including bacteria, viruses, algae, changes in pH, and accumulation of mineral, gas accumulation. contamination can come from various sources including pipelines, tank construction materials, animal and bird droppings, mineral and gas intrusion. A water tank is designed to work well to address and mitigate the negative effects. However, from time to time you can see that the water tank can corrode and even become infected. In the UK, a solution called Acothane increasingly becoming a popular choice to reline the water tank. The release of copper in acidic water monitors can be achieved with a variety of technologies, starting with pH strips will be more sophisticated and monitor pH, showed that when the pH of acid or caustic, some have communication skills output. There is no "relationship" between plastic tank and copper poisoning, the solution to this problem is easy, watching 'stored rainwater' with a cheap and widely available, swimming pool supply outlets' swimming pool strip '
If the water is too acidic, / district / local health officials state contact for advice and appropriate solutions and a range of pH and what principles should be used to treat rain water for use as drinking water in the country.
