A composite elevated tank is a single concrete pedestal supporting a welded steel container. Composite tanks offer some similar benefits to spherical tanks by requiring a smaller construction footprint, having interior ladder systems, and having less painted surface area to maintain.
Among elevated steel water tanks, a multi-column (or multi-leg) design is the most cost-effective choice in most circumstances. The tank consists of a welded steel container supported by multiple welded steel legs, perimeter columns, and a central welded steel riser.
A single-pedestal tank contains a single, welded steel pedestal supporting a welded steel container. Single pedestal tanks typically require a smaller compact construction footprint and offer the benefit of less surface area, hence less expense for paint maintenance.
A fluted column tank is a single, steel, fluted pedestal supporting a welded-steel container. Fluted columns offer similar design characteristics and internal storage capabilities as composite tanks.
Water systems are complex to operate. Existing structures often require periodic adjustments for efficiency. When a system needs a change in water pressure or storage capacity, you may be dollars ahead with a tank modification such as raising a water tank.
