Didn't know or realize the water tower I've gone past a jillion times was a Benchmark. On to more.

FOUND THIS ONE ON THE WAY BACK HOME FROM MOGA 2007.

Easy find. I have seen this tank many times in the past, but suddenly it dawned on me that it was probably a benchmark, so I looked into it & learned that it is indeed a BM. The cool thing is that it's a 2 for 1 deal along with KD1042.

God bless!
