Why so many pressure tanks?? While I’ve used multiple pressure tanks 15 or 20 years ago if your water source can’t keep up with demand a couple of thousand gallon tank with a pressure pump seems like the best option these days.

Years ago they had a 1,000 gallon steel tank with an air compressor to keep the tank air charged. The tank rusted out so we removed the tank and installed these tanks. Later we pulled the pump and converted to a VFD with 3 phase motor. The Brewery expanded last year and so we decided to install all the tanks as they were already there and they had space. More tanks give more storage and longer run time. One tank would have worked just fine with a VFD system.

Thanks, I was just wondering. As the bladders go bad you’ll lose pressure quicker, but if you have them you might as well use them.

does anybody have a status on when Colorado will open its national forest campgrounds? I was hoping to go up to Grand Mesa above Delta and Montrose and explore those places. Per Jeremiah Proffitt the ones around him are still closed.

I haven't heard of anything positive yet. I have been hearing that they are thinking of closing the forest down and will give out tickets... Praying that doesn't happen.
