The tower is 25 m high, and the capacity of a flat bottom tank, made of 10 mm thick steel sheet and embedded at a height of 23 m is 500 m3. Water for the use of the tank was drawn from nearby Odra. Then it was cleaned in sand filters and pumped into the tank with pumps with a total power of 30 HP. Initially, the main recipient was a railway neighboring with the plant, as well as the developing Racibórz industry. In the 1930s, the tower became insufficient for the needs of the city.

Currently, Raciborski Zakład Wodociągów i Sewer system is considering the commercial use of an unused facility for years.
