Fire Protection Water Tanks Approved for Use in Napa and Sonoma County
Pioneer Water Tanks are designed to meet NFPA 22 standards for fire protection water storage and come with a complete set of engineer-approved drawings. Our water storage systems are used as a supplemental water supply for firefighting, fire sprinklers, fire suppression, and fire flow solutions.
Pioneer Water Tank systems for fire protection are specified for the project application and local authority requirements. The amount of water that the tank needs to store is dependent on the County fire authority fire flow requirements.
Pioneer Water Tanks are manufactured of Zincalume® steel that has been proven to withstand fire immersion and resist corrosion, ensuring the safety of your water supply in even the worst emergencies.
Next-generation ZINCALUME® steel AM125 introduces magnesium into the aluminum-zinc alloy coating, which improves galvanic protection by activating the aluminum. The result is more effective corrosion resistance. BlueScope Steel research and testing have found that the addition of 2% magnesium is the optimum level of corrosion performance and coating integrity.
To ensure the durability and reputation of next generation ZINCALUME® steel, BlueScope Steel conducted a comprehensive testing program that included a series of accelerated laboratory corrosion tests as well as a strong emphasis on real-world outdoor exposure tests. A thorough and rigorous testing program ensured that the new product provided optimum performance.
Zincalume Steel® Duplex Coatings (a combination of Barrier and Sacrificial Coatings) Alloying of metals with differing corrosion performance allows the coating to be created that offers both barrier protection to protect the underlying steel, as well as sacrificial protection in the event the steel is cut, scratched, drilled or damaged. These coatings are very long lasting and at the same time protect exposed areas of steel.
Fire protection water tanks range from 7 to 11 feet in height with gross capacities ranging from 10,000 gallons to 1,000,000 gallons to accomplish your compliance needs.
Complete Project Management, We Help with Permitting
Pioneer Water Tanks are delivered to and built directly at the project site without the use of cranes, which reduces the overall project cost and allows for the most flexibility in adapting to the site’s installation requirements.
Store Potable Drinking Water for a Dual Use Water Tank
Pioneer Water Tanks are also approved for drinking water storage and can be used for dual-use purposes for residential and commercial projects. Dual-use tanks typically have separate plumbing systems to ensure the fire protection water supply is kept separate from the other use.
NSF-61 Certified for Drinking Water
The Pioneer Water Tanks’ AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner, is third party NSF-61 certified for drinking water storage.
The National Safety Foundation standards for drinking water are developed by a team of scientists and industry experts to guarantee products worldwide. The NSF/ANSI 61 Drinking Water System certification is accepted worldwide and is applicable for drinking water across North America.
We offer a full line of accessory options for drinking water storage as well as for dual use fire tanks.
