Large holes for fire couplings in bottom of fire tanks cause huge stresses in the plastic material at the bottom of the tank, our competition make heavier fire tanks to accommodate for these stresses based on FEA (Finite Element Analysis - Computer aided design) costing about $1000 more for of each tank. Our Unique system uses a siphon made from very cost effective PVC pipe with a fire coupling FMJ fitting are required by council and fire fighters alike.
A 100mm vent must be installed in the tank prevents any suction restriction or vacuum effect

Our Managing Director had been for a few years a volunteer fire fighter at a rural brigade north of Auckland, while these water storage tanks and FMJ fire fittings are required on most new builds we would like to give the opportunity to retrofit our system to any tank, if its full or not.
Fire safety is something to be taken seriously, we have worked with Ahuroa Brigade and upgrades the stations system to test our larger sized siphon system, we installed an extra shutoff valve on there system so they can use the water at any time.
Please use the checkout procedure for estimates on freight, we reserve the right to cancel an order if freight is incorrectly calculated by our website, our site cannot calculate some rural areas or island deliveries, we will contact you if there is an issue with a freight costing to your location.
We Deliver Water Tanks throughout the North of North Island, Our rates are based on distance, that makes us a bit more expensive for "far away" deliveries we can arrange freight to most islands, please call us or contact us with your address and details we can confirm the price for the delivery
We have a system developed that works on one or two tanks, the tanks will self level under a siphon and will balance through a smaller base connection
An average requirement for water tanks storage volume of 45,000l of fire fighting is quiet often the volume required for onsite storage for fire fighting in many district councils, sometimes this number is less or more depending on a large number of factors.
