The Best Cost Solution for Lower Capacity Water Storage
The spheroid elevated tank, with its single pedestal design and fewer exposed structural components, provides a significant maintenance cost advantage over multi legged tanks. The advantage virtually negates any capital cost premium and delivers savings to municipal budgets when evaluated over the life cycle of the tank. The bottom line: A spheroid elevated tank costs no more to own than an outmoded multi legged tank, and pays dividends in safety and aesthetics, as well as reduced maintenance.
The following cost comparison excerpt calculates the net present value of future maintenance, based on certain cost assumptions, a 5% interest rate and 3.25% inflation rate, and a conservative 60-year life cycle.
