Fire Protection Water Tank Options


    Pioneer Water Tanks structural engineering is suitable for fire protection rural, domestic or commercial use with the option for designs to suit earthquake zones, cyclonic regions, heavy industrial or highly specialized environments.

    Our water storage solutions are ready to be installed with our standard inclusions with the option to be configured with a wide range of accessories.

    We work with local qualified engineering personnel and independent consultant engineers to configure water tanks for projects. We offer NFPA 22 compliant fire protection accessories and permitting packages for projects where it’s required.



    Pioneer Water Tanks comply with NFPA 22 standard for private fire protection. Our fire protection systems include a complete set of engineer-approved drawings with the option to add an engineer wet-stamped cover letter per project for permits where required. Pioneer Water Tanks can be configured to the project requirements including the appropriate fire drafting connections.


    Commercial and residential properties that do not have an adequate water supply for local authority requirements can be supplied with a water storage tank for a building permit.

    Fire protection water tank capacity size is based on local fire authority requirements and building size and location. The local Fire Marshal will typically delegate the water tank capacity requirements but a fire protection engineer may be consulted as well.

    Our full lines of firefighting nozzles and adapter options can turn your tank into a water source that is ready for emergencies.

    Fire Protection Nozzle Options

    All Pioneer Water Tanks can be orientated to suit client requirements. We have the flexibility to insert Nozzles through the tank wall, roof or floor. They can adapt to most flange tables – BSP, D, E, DN, DIN or ANSI.

    We include our standard polyethylene fitting with an option to upgrade to galvanized steel or brass fittings. Our commercial line of nozzles ranges from 2” – 16” diameter with even more options outside of this range.

    Fire Protection Nozzle Orientation

    Nozzle orientation is an important component in tank design. The position and size of the nozzles will determine the “effective” or usable storage capacity. Before we manufacture any commercially designed water tank we create a nozzle orientation drawing.

    This allows you (or the engineer) to nominate the position of each nozzle – inlet, outlet, overflow, etc. to match up with existing or new pipework.

    This sample general arrangement drawing shows a commercial Pioneer Water Tank with a lot of additional accessories.
