This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: man_made=storage_tank+content=hot_water.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.

It is an energy storage device that stores energy in the form of hot water in a large mostly cylindrical, insulated container. The water can reach temperatures above 100° C.

The input can be the waste heat from a power plant, an industrial process, wind power, a solar thermal power plant with solar collectors and so on.

The stored energy can be used for heating or as hot water for houses.
