Is your independent water supply sufficient? Properties which depend on electric pumps to obtain their water from a bore, dam, swimming pool or overhead tanks under pressure face the danger of having the power cut-off during a bushfire. To operate a sprinkler system you will need an independent water supply with a minimum 22,000 litre capacity. A minimum 5hp (3.7kw) portable diesel or petrol motor coupled to a 38mm centrifugal fire pump will provide the independent water pressure needed for your emergency firefighting system when mains power is cut. When planning a sprinkler system remember that fires are accompanied by high winds and high temperatures that can reduce the effectiveness of fine sprays. Keep the sprinklers operating until well after the fire has passed. Ask Tony (m. 0418 827 200) about the best tips to design your rainwater tank system for reducing your fire risk.
