Tinacos – aka water tanks – Mexico

Virtually every building in our area of Mexico has a Tinaco or water tank on the roof. Water is pumped up to the Tinaco and gravity feeds the water to your taps. If you want more than a drizzle in your shower, you add a water pressure tank to the system.

Modern tinacos look like this.

 

 

You sometimes see a cement tinaco on the roof of an old building. They can be as much as 100 years old.

I wonder if the modern ones will last as long?

  1. They don’t build things to last these days. I was glad to hear that you and your family are all safe and well, both in BC and Mexico. We are fine here in Spain as well. Staying in and following the strict rules. Take care.
