Re: Water tank height

The likely explanation for the high water tanks is that they served a dual function as part of the water supply for indoor plumbing in surrounding buildings. For every 2.31' of elevation you get 1lb. of pressure or .433 lbs/ft. The typical water tank when full is not tall enough vertically to supply more than 10-12 lbs. at ground level. 15-20 is bare minimum for water supply to indoor plumbing, 40-60+ being more in line with modern expectations.
