Water tanks - in terms of function - are extremely simple.
They are large (and sometimes small) containers that hold water. There's no moving parts and very limited maintenance required to keep them working properly.
The more interesting part of how a water tank works is in the gathering and distribution of your water:
- Harvest the water
- Hold the water over extended periods
- Distribution of rainwater when required
