I am translating a story from El Salvador. In this country, there is a kind of multi-usage water container called, pila.
People use the "pilas" to retain water (for days or months), wash their clothes or dishes, among other things. They tend to have them in their houses, mostly in their backyards or inside. They are often made from stone or cement, and often have a faucet to fill them.
In the rural parts, you can find them in some public places, where you can rent them for a fee to wash your clothes.
The "pilas" look like this:
Personally, I have never seen anything like that in the European countries I have visited or in California.
I tried to Google it, but I could not find any good enough noun. I got suggestions like:
- water stack
- communal water supply
- water font
And many others. You can read some suggestions here:
Personally, none of the suggestions convinced me. Do you know any noun that could represent this thing?
