    Gave me many things to think about in regards my own water system. Thank you, Mr. Ludwig.

    Astonishing amount of practical, comprehensive content packed into 125 pages. The two most striking strengths of this book were: 1. Ludwig uses his experiences remedying poorly designed tanks to help readers avoid similar mistakes designing their new systems 2. There is balanced coverage of convenient systems common in industrialized parts of the world and lower tech time-tested systems in use in less wealthy parts of the world to give designers a broader range of possibilities in terms of cost Astonishing amount of practical, comprehensive content packed into 125 pages.

    Could not read straight through cause my brain just could process, but very good reference book for when we start working on this

    It was an okay book, but I was expecting something that would appeal to a broader audience (the cover to me looks like the books for DIY'ers. But (as another reviewer said) I was disappointed that it focused so heavily on dry desert regions. And with the bright cover, I was surprised that the inside was black and white...It was kind of technical and though it had a tid-bit here and there that I liked, I feel like there has to be better books out there that covers water storage.

    It was an okay book, but i was expecting something that would appeal to a broader audience. I did come away with a couple of good nuggets of info, but I was disappointed that it focused so heavily on California and Mexico. Again, it could have had a broader focus and less technical lingo. If the author had written it to be useful by more of us without engineering degrees, it might have been more helpful.

    I can't decide whether to give Water Storage four or five stars. It's excellent, but doesn't cover any form of storage other than tanks in any depth.

    Good intro book but not comprehensive, so you will have to supplement with info from other sources.

    Great book. I will be building my own water storage tank using the information found in this book. Also I will probably purchase a tank based on the helpful information in this book

    Can't say I liked this book as literature, but rather for the information it provides.
