There are two basic methods;

1. Run tank water through an underground loop with a pump that is controlled by a thermostat.

2. Run a glycol solution through a closed underground loop that also has a heat exchanger to transfer the heat from the tank water.

Option 2 is slightly more complicated but better due to the elimination of possible stagnant tank water from the loop.
