Fire Protection Tanks
Available from Xerxes Corp
Fiberglass underground tanks for fire-protection water are in high demand as a result of increased regulations and insurance industry requirements. Whether it is a sole source of water in rural areas or as a standby water reservoir to supplement a pressurized municipal water system, a Xerxes tank provides maintenance-free, corrosion resistant underground water storage.
Fiberglass underground tanks are recognized in NFPA 22 standard, Water Storage Tanks for Fire Protection Systems, as well as NFPA 1142 standard, Water Supplies for Suburban and Rural Fire Fighting.
Features of Xerxes fire protection water tanks:
Corrosion-resistance - long-term storage of water requires a tank material like fiberglass which is immune to rust.
Buried design - eliminates the need to add expensive protection measures to prevent freezing, while removing the aesthetic problems of an aboveground tank.
Strong H20 structural design - necessary for locations where vehicle traffic is a factor, such as parking lots.
