Sherwin-Williams Launches Online Water Tank Color Designer

You can see that finished water tank project in your mind, and it has the potential of being fantastic. However, the trick is showing it in visual form to potential clients. 

With that in mind, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine recently introduced its Water Tank Color Designer, an online tool for conceptualizing, visualizing, and optimizing water storage tank coating projects.

Bringing Visions to Reality

“We wanted to create a comprehensive tool that engineers, contractors, and applicators can all use to accurately and creatively design water storage tank projects,” said Bryan Draga, global vice president of marketing. “With our best-in-industry technology and an unequaled array of capabilities, the Water Tank Color Designer helps our customers bring their visions into reality and makes it easier to share designs for approval from everyone involved.”

Located at, the designer presents an array of customizable options, including tank styles, paint colors, logos, icons, and fonts. Users can even create multi-color designs with different colors for various areas of the tank, such as the top, bottom, and legs. Users can also upload their own logo designs to help make their visualization as true to life as possible.

“We’re providing eight different tank styles, including ground storage, standpipe, legged, spheroid, hydropillar, hydrotank, cone roof, and composite,” Draga said. “And there’s access to any of the Sherwin-Williams 4000 Series industrial colors, as well as the most popular exterior tank colors, to find just the right one. Users can also add in their own messaging and imagery, so the possibilities are virtually limitless.”

Showcasing Your Tank Design

With the visualization tool, users can select the appropriate environment for showcasing their tank design, depending on whether the real-world project will stand against a city skyline or a field, for example. The virtual tank view is also fully rotatable for examination of the design from all angles.

Upon completion of their tank design, users will receive a link to their completed project, which can be accessed, shared, and updated. If desired, the designer features a direct contact to the Sherwin-Williams team to help make a given project happen.
