SAN JOSE, CA, Oct. 11, 2010 -- Shearer Tanks™, a division of Shearer & Associates Inc., just wrapped up the Rainbow's End tank in Cupertino, CA, and the Branham Lane tank in San Jose, CA, under budget and ahead of schedule. Both tanks were through Lewis & Tibbitts, general contractor, and engineered by San Jose Water. These were the right solutions from the ground up for San Jose Water.

"We bid these two tanks at the end of March, and completed our work ahead of schedule with zero defects. San Jose Water was able to fill the tanks on time and start delivering water to their customers." Rod Shearer, president of Shear Tanks, added "We made sure we completed these projects right…the first time…and wrapped up both tanks ahead of schedule."

These tanks are an integral part of San Jose's municipal upgrade. Both jobs were Fusion® Glass-Fused- to-Steel tanks. Rainbow's End was 60,000, and Branham was 104,000 gallons. Their selection followed careful technical and engineering consideration, and was based on their greater service life, very low maintenance and reduced capital costs.

"When you do the cost benefit analysis, glass-fused-to-steel tanks make the most economic sense," said Ryan Kreider for Lewis & Tibbitts. "Plus, Shearer was able to get right on installation of these jobs."
