Words of advice
While it is possible to manufacture water
storage vessels in almost any shape you would be wise to explore the
possibility of using a cylinder in any situation. Cylinders are the ideal
shape as they can withstand the surprising stresses that the pressure of
water create. A vessel, for example, with flat sides tends to bow outward as
the weight of water contained within pushes against it. For this reason flat
sided vessels have to be made especially strong, which means thick material,
which means more cost.
In short, whenever possible opt for a
cylindrical storage vessel. If height is the problem then maybe a horizontal
cylinder might suffice, but always explore cylinders before opting for the
more expensive option of a flat sided tank.
