How to include a closed water reservoir (For eg. clear water sump from treatment plant, Ground level service reservoir, Mass balancing reservoirs - partially below GL) in the model. Can it be a reservoir element or only tank element in the model?

We have  to revalidate the design of the network system consisting of Transmission main(s), feeder main(s) and distribution network system of a city using Watergems. The system consists of Transmission main(s), feeder main(s) with Intake sump, WTP clear water sumps, Booster station, mass balancing reservoirs, Ground level service reservoirs  and over head tanks supplied by both gravity and pumping. Whether these closed Intake sump, WTP clear water sumps, Booster station, mass balancing reservoirs and Ground level service reservoirs be a reservoir element in the model or only tank element?. I feel that unless the supply is from a dam these elements should be designed with a tank element only.
