Houston Fire Protection Water Tanks

Houston Fire Protection Water Tanks

When you live in a high fire hazard, rural or unincorporated area you may be required to have a fire water tank. The water tank allows you to have a constant flow of water or fire extinguishing material so that the fire protection system will not run out of water as well as help maintain the water pressure needed. The amount of flow and capacity of water is very important when it comes time to extinguish a fire.
Types of fire protection water tanks come in plastic, stainless steel, and fiberglass. If you are planning a retrofit with your fire protection system and require a water tank, you may want to look at fiberglass first as you can generally build the fiberglass tank inside the facility with pieces its easier than ripping out walls.
