How do I model a Break Pressure Tank (BPT) ?

The simplest form of modelling a BPT is to model it as a tank with relevant elevation and storage. However since the tanks in EPAnet are modelled as connected from tank bottom, it is preferable to model the tank with a PSV in the upstream with a pressure setting = 0 (atmospheric pressure) and a check valve at the downstream to check reverse flow.
