The Metal Water Reservoir is standing storage device for containing water. The upgraded version of Water Reservoir. This reservoir has a higher durability and storage.

The reservoir can hold up to 500 water. It can be filled up by connecting it to irrigation pipes and it automatically fills up during rain or snowfall. It has 10 itemslots.


While you can fill the Water Reservoir using a Waterskin, Water Jar or Canteen, you cannot directly refill a waterskin, water jar or canteen from the reservoir. Connect a tap to a pipe that the water tank is connected to. The water will flow out of the tap to drink from or to fill waterskins or jars.


You must place the water tank on top of a pipe. ( Intersection, Straight or Inclined).

Since it needs to be placed upon a pipe, it cannot be used on rafts.


  • As the reservoir is placed on top of pipes, keep in mind that destruction of the pipe to which the tank is attached will also lead to destruction of the reservoir.
  • The reservoir can not be placed on platform saddles or rafts, as it requires connection to water pipes.
