i used to believe that water towers were huge robots, and to activate them you had to turn the gauge... but then everyoe would have no water, because it would have been carried away in the robots!

Not mine, but my daughter's. She was about 4 when we went camping at a local campground that had its own water tower. She believed that it was a space ship and that aliens had come camping from another planet. She looked for the aliens all weekend!

I used to think those huge water towers that you see in the middle of the town held huge pools of water with alligators in them. I always wondered how they would get them out...

When I was about 4 years I saw a water tower. I asked my parents how do you add water to it. Everyone was quiet for a moment. Then I said that you just take the roof off and add more water with giant pot.

As a small child, I thought my town's water tower was a giant Dairy Queen with an elevator leading up to it. Unfortunately, there actually was a Dairy Queen right around the corner, so it took my parents years to figure out why I really started whining for ice cream when we drove past it.

The water tower in my town has these two whitelights at the top. When I was little, I always though that the water tower was someones house and when they sat outside (which was always at night), they wore hardhats with lights on them in case they fell off the tower...

I didn't know what water towers were for, however I did know that they were called "water towers." I guessed that they collected rain water. When it would rain, a door on the top would automatically open and allow the rain water through. The water would be filtered, and sent through underground pipes to the local water company's headquarters, also underground.

When I was little I thought my grandma owned the water tower because the only one I ever saw was on the way to her house so I associated it with her. Now I'm 27 and I still say "Look there's Grandma's Water Tower" when we go past.

I also used to think people worked up there purifying the water and went up and down the ladders but I never actually saw anyone doing it.

when I was little, I used to think that water towers were full of water. I was always confused because they had doors on them sometimes. I thought that if someone opened the door on a water tower, that all the water would spill out

While driving across the fine state of Minnesota with my mother and grand mother I caught site of a watertower that had sometype of funny face painted on it. About an hour later i noticed another water tower (mind you this was 70 miles down the road) that didnt have the face painted on it. When i pointed it out to my mom she told me "no nobody repainted it honey its a different watertower." I was sent into shock and utter amazement that Minnesota had not one but TWO water towers. I still remember telling my grandma that they must drink a LOT of water up here!!

I used to believe that water towers were alien space ships, and during the night the aliens would go down to the cities an select people to have parties with them. At the end of the night they would brain wash every one so that other people wouldn't be jealose.

Here in Australia you usually see two water towers next to each other, one big and wide, the other tall and thin.
When i was Little i use to to think one was for cold water and the other was for hot water (seemed logical at the time) untill one day i asked my grandfather if one was for hot water, after everyone stoped laughing i found out the truth.

When I was about five, we had a watertower in our little town. One day, I asked my mom, "Mommy, what is in that big tall thing?"
She told me, "Raisins."
So I always believed that there were raisins in watertowers!

In my Nieghborhood there's about 20 kids that live(d) in it and we're all friends but wen we were in Elementary school we'd always go on bike rides together and there's a water tower right across the highway that's behind my house, that's where we usually rode our bikes to. There's a big door thingy on the side of the water tower so we thought that a guy lived there and we called him Walter Water, he couldn't talk and he couldn't come out cuz he would die if he came out of the water in the tower. so the only way he could communicate with us is if we banged on the sides of the tower and he'd answer back. But we did relize that our bangs echoed, and that no one was really banging back at us.
