Water towers are traditionally monochromatic, dull in design and aesthetic. But across the country there are a series of colorful water tanks that tower over their city’s local residents. Many things contribute to the vibrancy of a water tank all within the tank’s coating system. The coating system is responsible for a tank’s ability to withstand elemental deterrents to produce a long-lasting, vibrant coating for decades.
