Warning! Do NOT add your wells to water tower!

Last night, I did a big mistake...
When the timer for the water tower was up, I clicked to add my wells on it, without first checking if the tower will behave like a big well. The bad news is that it doesn't, and I will explain myself...

With wells we used to be able to harvest them while having for example 29/30 water and the well timer started counting while the well had still 9/10 available water on it, thus giving us much more water in the end of the day. Someone in this forum already made the maths but I can't find his post.

Now with water tower, when you harvest it, you get all the 70 water in once, which means that you have 70/30 and you won't get that 1 water per 3 minutes until your water supply gets back to at least 29/30.

Moreover, as Kathy stated on this post:
your water tower won't be available to you while you upgrade it to lvl 2 etc.

So my advice is:
At least until they fix it to work like a well...If it was not an intentional move to stop us from using the wells on a later time, in the first place.

From all the replies I get that, in the end, it's a matter of taste and gameplay.
I login into FV2 for about 5-10 mins every 2 hrs, harvesting some crops and planting some others, watering groves and using the excess power. With that kind of gameplay, the water tower just doesn't do any good, because I have less water than I used to. If I harvest the tower, I usually don't have what to do with it, so I don't get that 1 water per 3mins during my logged off time. Ok I can waste it ofc, watering apples and oranges, or planting blueberries, but then, when I login after 2 hours I only have the 30 water refilled, the same time I used to have +18 water from wells, to water the IMPORTANT (to me) crops and trees...
If you login every 4 hrs or more, the water tower rocks for you. For me? It sucks...
