2018 Tank of the Year in Katy, Texas

(KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 2, 2019) – Online voting will open Monday, Oct. 7, at 9 a.m. Central time for the 2019 Tank of the Year contest sponsored by Tnemec Company, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance protective coatings. People can vote for their favorite water tank at where photos of this year’s nominated water tanks are posted.

“This year’s contest looks to be another interesting one,” commented Randy Moore, Director of Sales – Agency Development & Industry Affairs. “We have more than 300 water tank nominations this year from all over the US and Canada.”

Only one vote is allowed per person, but voters will be able to view the front-runners at any time when they revisit the site or track and share contest results using #tankoftheyear. Voting will be open for two weeks, closing on Oct. 18 at 5 p.m. CST. After online voting has ended, the water tank receiving the most online votes will be named the People’s Choice and receive an automatic bid as a finalist for the 2019 Tank of the Year title.

The People’s Choice winner and the 11 finalists selected by a committee will be announced on Oct. 21. The 2019 Tank of the Year will be announced on Oct. 25. All finalists and nominees will appear in Tnemec’s 2020 water tank calendar, beginning with the Tank of the Year winner in January.

Last year’s winning tanks are in Katy, Texas. In 2018, the City of Katy completed two water tanks with almost identical eye-catching murals, both colorful depictions of geese flying through a bright blue skyline and the city’s name in oversized red letters. These tanks were completed using Tnemec’s advanced fluoropolymer topcoat, HydroFlon, formulated to retain color and gloss levels for decades.
