What are the considerations for integrating fire pumps with water storage tanks?


 Integrating fire pumps with water storage tanks involves several considerations:
  • Tank Capacity: Ensure the tank capacity is sufficient to meet the demands of the fire protection system, considering factors such as flow rate, duration of operation, and local regulations.
  • Pump Activation: Implement controls that automatically activate the fire pump when the water level in the tank drops below a certain threshold, ensuring continuous water supply during emergencies.
  • Water Quality: Maintain water quality in the storage tank to prevent contamination and ensure the water remains suitable for fire suppression.
  • Tank Location: Position the tank strategically to minimize friction losses in the piping system and optimize water distribution to fire sprinklers or hydrants.
