What Is a Fire Tank?
Firefighters rely on fire tanks to support their extinguishing efforts. These large containers filled with water can be found at residential, commercial, and industrial sites in New York and across the globe. Some fire tanks serve to supplement a building’s standard water pressure when a fire emergency strikes. Others provide a direct water supply for the automatic sprinkler system.
Regardless of the precise function of your fire tank, this is obviously a significant part of your building’s fire safety plan. Tanks are paired with fire pumps designed for heavy-duty applications. They get the water up to pressure, whether for use with the sprinkler system or a fire hose connected directly to the pump.
Recharging a Fire Tank
If a blaze ignites in your building and your fire sprinklers come on, water may be drawn from your fire tank, depending on the setup of your fire protection system. This depletes the water level to some degree, limiting the ability to fight a fire the next time one breaks out.
To ensure you don’t leave your building unprotected for any length of time, have your fire tank recharged as soon as possible. This is usually a simple matter of running a suction hose to a source of clean water and refilling the tank this way.

A number of industry and regulatory standards are in place for fire tank construction, installation, and inspections. Fire Guys NY adheres to all requirements to keep your building safe and code compliant.
