The water heater of the tank-type model, which is designed in large, cylindrical tank and connecting pipes attached to it, is the common fixture installed in many homes and in which is powered by electricity either by solar power, home generator, gas, or supplied electricity. There two standard sources of power, which run the water heaters, are electric or fuel-fired, this latter either uses natural gas or propane. In fuel-fired units, a vent pipe exists at the top to exit the exhaust gases, while those of the electric units have a power cable connected to the electric panel in the house.

A dual purpose system is set up in tank-type heaters, which is supplying hot water and storing water until it’s ready for use. Due to its dual function, the tank is well-insulated to make the water temperature constant. A relief valve called T (temperature) and P (pressure) valve is also attached, which relieves the tank when the T and P of the water reaches its allowable limit.
