Installation stages

Particular stages of HydroTank fire-fighting water tanks installation:

  1. Preparing all the necessary measurements, executing the project according to global standards, selecting the most effective materials,
  2. Delivering materials, preparing and leveling the ground for the outpouring of the concrete foundation on which the tank will be placed,
  3. Placing the tank with hydraulic cylinders, preparing thermal insulation (external or internal), performing hydrolysis of PVC foil of 1,5 mm (warranty: 35 years) or using the EPDM membrane of 0, 75 mm – 1, 00 mm (warranty: 30 years), and installing additional equipment, such as:
    • process pipelines,
    • outside ladder with galvanized steel elements with protective platform and barrier, which allows to access the inspection hatch, placed on the roof of the tank.
    • filling pipeline mounted inside the tank from the bottom to the top level of the water surface, it ends with a float valve – inlet port is made by the foundation slab, it ends with a flange, in the case of supply line passing through the shell of the tank, we need to take care of anti- freeze insulation to a depth appropriate for your climate zone;
    • suction ports with anti – vortex plates, end with cowls adjusted to the needs of the fire brigade or suction ports end with flanges – depending on the applied solution;
    • blowdown connection with a valve that supports water drainage;
    • overflow pipe for efficient drainage of excess water;
  4. Attaching the tank to the concrete slab by anchor bolts.
  5. Finishing the work relating to installing the tank along with the implementation of retrofitting (on request)
  6. Testing the tightness of the tank by filling it with water (the water level in the testing phase should be approx. 1, 5 m). The entire testing process takes approx. 24 hours.
  7. Testing of electrical equipment (carried out by a fully filled tank) Water level is also subject to control, thanks to holding tank sensors. You can operate them with the control box, on the tank’s shell.
  8. Transferring technical documentation, along with certificates, warranty card and instruction manual.
