What are the reservoirs.

According to the design features, the water bodies are divided into:
• on small and ultra-small reservoirs with a finished lining of the bottom and sides, made in the factory (this is usually a film or a finished bath).

If this rule is not observed, cases of such reservoirs “floating up” above the surface of the earth are not isolated, which immediately violates the aesthetic qualities of the territory of the object; Continue reading
