- Water tower are used to hoist water tanks above the ground. This is done to increase water flow pressure. A water tower can be done as high as desired. However, for one that is done with wooden poles, the highest it can be hoisted is 20 ft above ground, while the ordinary height is 8ft. However, other parameters such as the distance, gradient of the land are a key consideration in determining the height of a water tower.
Water towers are suitable for farms intending to irrigate crops and households intending to boost water pressure. Wooden water towers are as safe as those made of steel and are inexpensive.
