Tank Elevation Changes

When an existing water tank does not provide enough water pressure, there are several solutions: 1) buying a new tank with greater water pressure capacities, 2) integrating a booster pump, and 3) raising or lowering the existing tank.

While all three of these options resolve the issue, the first two options often cost significantly more time and money than the third option.

At Pittsburg Tank & Tower Group (PTTG), we specialize in the design, manufacture, and maintenance of tanks, towers, and their support systems. One of our core service offerings is water storage tank elevation modification.

Water Storage Tank Elevation Modifications

The tank and tower experts at PTTG offer a broad selection of water storage tank elevation modification options to accommodate a wide range of customer needs. Our modification capabilities include:

  • Tank raising. This modification allows existing tanks to provide better water pressure without the integration of a booster pump.
  • Tank lowering. This modification enables tank owners to maximize the effectiveness of an existing tank.
  • Tank relocation. This modification serves as a fast, flexible, and cost-effective alternative to new tank construction.

The objective of all of these processes is to improve or enhance the performance of the existing tank to suit the facility’s current water pressure needs. Compared to investing in new water storage equipment, these options come with much lower investment costs.

They do not require the purchasing of additional land, the building of new foundations or complete structures, or the destruction of existing structures, all of which cost time and money. Additionally, they generally have a smaller impact on service since completing the modification takes less time than is needed to build a new tank from scratch.

If you’re unsure of whether you should modify your existing tank or build a new one, our experts are here to help. Our engineering department will perform feasibility studies to determine the scope of the project, including whether the existing foundation needs modifications. The results of the study also show which modification option is the most practical and cost-effective.
