In the title complex, [Zn(C20H14N2O4)(H2O)]·3H2O, the Zn II center is in an approximately square-pyramidal coordination environment with the two N and two O atoms of the tetra-dentate Schiff base ligand forming the basal plane and the coordinated water mol-ecule in the apical position. Three solvent water mol-ecules complete the asymmetric unit. The dihedral angles between the two outer benzene rings of the Schiff base and the central benzene ring are 12.64 (14) and 17.25 (14)°. In the crystal structure, inter-molecular O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol-ecules into sheets parallel to the ab plane.
