Hi, I am using Eplus 8.9.

i was wondering, which considerations should I have to do if I have a water reservoir under the slab that acts as a buffer with the soil temperature?

If the water reservoir is at known temperatures, you could use this directly as the slab outside boundary condition, using OtherSideCoefficients as the outside boundary condition (see SurfaceProperty:OtherSideCoefficients) to set scheduled outside surface temperatures.

Or, if the reservoir is stagnant, I suppose you could added it as another layer in the slab construction.
