Water-based fire protection systems need a reliable source of water. Stored water is a common and acceptable type of water supply for these systems. NFPA 22 is the Standard for Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection. This document describes the minimum requirements of the various types of tanks used for fire protection including gravity tanks, suction tanks, pressure tanks and break tanks. This seminar will highlight the requirements of this standard and will include valuable information on the various aspects of water tanks design and installation including: tank capacity, acceptable tank material, tank heating, pipe connections and fitting as well as acceptance test requirements and inspection testing and maintenance of water tanks.
