Warning! Do NOT add your wells to water tower!

by Tasi Kilata - Apr 28, 2014 Star_s13,288 views

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:
http://gamersunite.coolchaser.com/topics/125110-farmville-2-water-tower-upgrade
your water tower won't be available to you while you upgrade it to lvl 2 etc.

So my advice is:
STAY AWAY FROM WATER TOWER!
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.

And here is another tip - when you open your farm and your water bar is on 30 - use one water and then empty your water tower. This means it will start refilling immediately. Do the same with your Windmill - the nice thing about the windmill is it will top up into the power bar regardless of how many powers you already have. The water needs to be below 30 to top up.
