At work, we have a cylindrical tank that holds water. The tank is 5 feet round and about 6 feet long putting the highest part of the tank at about 6 feet off the ground. The tank holds 1000 gallons of water. There is a valve on the bottom that I am needing to test and I can’t seem to find a formula to give me the psi to test it on that would simulate it being filled with 1000 gallons of water. Any help is greatly appreciated(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
