WATER STORAGE FOR FIRE PROTECTION IN SACRAMENTO COUNTY

All structures are required to implement an automatic fire sprinkler system. For structures whose water supply cannot supply the sprinkler system or provide for adequate fire response, additional water storage may be needed.

 

“A storage tank, designed and installed in accordance with the 2003 edition of NFPA 22, Standard for Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection and this standard, shall be provided. The tank shall be sized to contain the minimum sprinkler demand in accordance with the 2002 edition of NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems plus 20,000 gallons.” – San Diego Fire Authority (link)

 

Pioneer Water Tanks are engineered to NFPA standards for water storage for fire protection. The tank body and roof are made of Zincalume® Steel, which is proven to withstand fire immersion. The tank’s firefighting adapters and nozzles are compatible with fire hoses across California.

 

Pioneer Water Tanks can be configured for cyclonic and seismic conditions, as well as heavy industrial zones. Additional accessories are available for different compliance needs. Outfit your tank with anti-vortex fittings and firefighting adapters for quick access during a fire emergency.

 

Fire Protection 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. The amount of water that the tank needs to store is dependent on the county fire authority fire flow requirements. Fire flow requirements specify the amount of water needed to adequately provide fire protection.

 

We offer complete permit submittal packages that include California engineer stamped detailed drawings as well as the tank foundation design for an easy process to spec for projects. Pioneer Water Tanks are constructed on-site with a proprietary jacking system that doesn’t require heavy machinery for an accelerated installation.

Sacramento County Fire Protection Water Tanks

Pioneer Water Tanks are approved for use in Sacramento County for fire protection and drinking water storage. Combining several uses into one dual-use water tank saves money as compared to buying two separate water storage systems. Our standpipe or external fitting options diverts the additional water supply to ensure that it doesn’t affect the required mandated usable water capacity for fire protection. We offer commercial accessory options to comply with local requirements.

FIRE PROTECTION WATER TANKS

Pioneer Water Tanks provides Sacramento County with cost-efficient water storage tanks.

SACRAMENTO FIRE PROTECTION WATER TANKS

Pioneer Water Tanks are cost-effective for dual purposes and are approved for use in California. Dual service water storage tanks can be used for fire protection, irrigation, as a potable drinking water source and more applications. Ensure adequate water supply is ready in case of an emergency with the appropriate fire connections for residential and commercial needs. This is typically achieved with two separate plumbing systems being implemented with the water tank. The plumbing pipe for the separate use does not extend below the water elevation that is reserved for fire protection.

 

We can deliver and install water storage tanks from 10,000 to 1,000,000-Gallons. Pioneer Water Tanks are backed by our industry-leading 20-Year warranty so you can rest easy knowing you have a water storage solution that will last.

ZINCALUME® STEEL IS TESTED AND PROVEN TO LAST LONGER

Only the highest quality Zincalume® and Colorbond® steel are used in Pioneer Water Tanks, providing unmatched durability that no other tank manufacturer can offer- that’s why Pioneer Tanks last longer than any other brand. Pioneer Water Tanks come standard in Zincalume® Steel with your option of upgrading to a wide selection of Colorbond® steel color options.

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. Along with a capital investment of over $100 million to facilitate the required manufacturing capability, BlueScope Steel can now produce next-generation ZINCALUME® steel AM125 with even greater durability and a more efficient protective coating mass.

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.

Pioneer Water Tanks Foundations

The foundation for Pioneer Water Tanks depends on the location and application of the water storage project. Pioneer Water Tanks may have the option to sit on a clean sand pad base or may be required to be anchored to a concrete ring beam depending on the local authority.

This short video shows a concrete ring beam being installed for a 51,785-Gallon Pioneer Water Tank in Nothern California.

Concrete ring beam outline for Pioneer Water Tanks

The ring beam drawings specify the size, number and spacing of the reinforcing bars and ligatures to be used as well as the MPA rating for the concrete. Ring beams should be as level as possible and have no more than +/- 1/16” over any 5’0” (+/- 2mm over any 2m) of the circumference at the tank wall position and +/- 1/8” (+/- 4mm) over the entire ring beam. A survey chart will need to be completed and returned to your local installer for approval before the construction is started.

Concrete ring beam for Pioneer Water Tanks

The local Pioneer Water Tanks installer needs to ensure that foundation conditions are adequate. All water storage systems are subject to the local authority requirements so Pioneer Water Tanks also recommends local installers adhere to that authority for the tank location.
