Fiberglass Fire Protection Tanks
Fiberglass fire protection tanks provide a corrosion free, water tight, long lasting solution for your water storage needs. Burying a fiberglass fire protection tank eliminates vandalism and freezing concerns. And with a H20 (traffic bearing) structural tank design, you can utilize the tank anywhere.

Fire protection designs often allow the fire protection tank to serve
as a dual purpose tank. Purposing your fire protection tank as a
rainwater collection, potable water, fountain or stormwater
collection tank adds value and savings to your specific project.
Fiberglass Fire Protection Tank Considerations
A couple of things you may want to consider when equiping your underground fiberglass fire protection tank:
All fittings on the inside of the tank must be made of non corrosive material, such as fiberglass or stainless steel.
If your area experiences seasonal freezes, then the top of the tank must be buried below the frost line.
Tank gallonage is measured in total tank volume. If your outlet is not on the top of the tank, you can use our dipstick calibration chart to get a liquid volume. (use invert of outlet elevation.)
If you are using a vertical turbine pump inside a fiberglass tank, then take the pump suction elevation into consideration. A bottom sump can be added to our tanks for full tank utilization.
