Fire protection tanks are often installed in commercial, housing and industrial developments that are far from municipal water supplies. Cisterns with dry hydrant hookups are routinely mandated by rural and suburban fire officials, where commercial and residential development is growing faster than the municipal water supply system. Building codes require standby sources of water to be available to firefighters to establish or supplement a water supply.
If a primary water source isn't able to provide adequate supply or pressure, ZCL | Xerxes tanks can store the additional water. A dry hydrant connection to the tank allows fire trucks quick access to the water source.
Fire protection professionals enjoy peace of mind when they recommend ZCL | Xerxes fiberglass fire water tanks -- the durable choice to keep people safe.
The Greenwich Connecticut Fire Department chose a ZCL | Xerxes fiberglass tank for their fire suppression needs at the Greenwhich Audubon Society. The rural Society is dependent on a fire cistern for their fire protection water supply. The fire department had previously installed several tanks throughout Greenwich.View Case Study
