Expert Answer:

The colour white is a very good reflector. When the light and heat rays from the sun hit the walls of the tank, major part of those rays will be reflected and so the water inside the tank will not heat up.
Thus, to keep the water inside the tank cool during hot weather, the outer walls are painted white.
