What Is A Fire Protection Tank?

A fire protection tank is a water storage tank that is dedicated solely to fire protection and prevention. Fire tanks must comply with codes from local, state, and national regulations.

A fire tank should be one part of a fire readiness or fire prevention protection plan. With the inflation we are currently seeing the worst since the late 70s and more wildfires in the area everyone should have a fire protection plan and fire tank. Having a fire protection plan that incorporates a fire tank may save your insurance from being cancelled or the premiums becoming so high you can’t afford it.

A fire protection plan should include:
Fire protection tanks can have connections and valves installed during manufacturing for hose connections for fire department hoses and garden hoses as well as sprinkler systems. You just have to order your tank with the connections you want. If you want your local fire department to be able to connect you will need to know the size for the connection.

Fire Tanks for both Commercial and Residential

Fire tanks are for both commercial and residential properties. A fire tank will reduce the risk of a total loss of structures and personal property. The main difference between commercial and residential is that commercial businesses have more structures and equipment for processes to protect than residential. Therefore, the business will need a much larger capacity water tank for fire protection than a residential property.

Both commercial and residential must comply with all local, state, and federal codes regarding fire protection plans and water flow for their particular situation.

Steel Bolted or Poly Tanks Available for Fire protection in San Benito County

Steel bolted and poly tanks are available in San Benito County for fire protection tanks. These tanks meet the NFPA-22 standard for fire tanks. They also can be set up during manufacturing for the proper valves and connections for fire protection.

Commercial businesses will generally use the steel bolted tanks because they have a larger water capacity. Businesses have more structures, equipment, supplies, and other property that needs protection. With the larger capacity they can feed their sprinkler systems both interior and exterior. When combined with a complete fire protection plan it provides a reduced risk of a total loss when a fire happens.

Steel bolted tanks hold from 4,000 gallons to over two million gallons.

Residential tanks normally will be the poly tanks unless the building is a large apartment building. Poly tanks have a smaller capacity. These tanks meet the needs of residential properties. These properties have few structures, less equipment, and other property to protect.

Poly tanks will hold between 400 gallons and 15,500 gallons. Residential tanks allow for reduced risk of a total loss. Especially when combined with other parts of a fire protection plan.

Remember your best chances to reduce your risk of loss is to use a fire protection tank as part of a total fire protection plan.
