Tanks can be designed to hold from 50,000 to several million gallons, are provided with foundations, and often finished with elaborate painted graphics and color schemes. Tanks may incorporate cathodic protection and piping. Some water tank designs allow for several floors, office space and other facilities. Private, municipal, and industrial water system engineers and operators specify steel tanks for their reliability, long-term value, and low, predictable normal maintenance.
