      What is the formula for calculating
      water pressure at an outlet from water in a storage tank feet above the outlet?

      Thanks,
      Rick G.

      Water exerts a pressure of 0.431 pounds for every standing foot of water; so a tank 10 feet above the tap would exert a static pressure of 4.31 lbs. on the tap below.
