The water tank capacity shall be approximately 500 US gallon or 4164 Imperial gallons. Certification of the tank
capacity shall be recorded on the manufacturer's record of construction and shall be provided to the purchaser
upon delivery of the apparatus.
CONSTRUCTION
The tank must be designed and fabricated by a tank manufacturer that is ISO 9001:2008 certified. The ISO
certification must be to the current standard in effect at the time of the design and fabrication of the tank.
The water tank shall be of a specific configuration and designed to be completely independent of the body and
compartments. Joints and seams shall be fused using nitrogen gas as required and tested for maximum strength
and integrity. The tank construction shall include PolyProSeal™ technology wherein a sealant shall be installed
between the plastic components prior to being fusion welded. This sealing method will provide a liquid barrier
offering leak protection in the event of a weld compromise. The top of the booster tank is fitted with removable
lifting assembly designed to facilitate tank removal. The transverse and longitudinal swash partitions shall be
manufactured of a minimum of 3/8" PT3™ polypropylene. All partitions shall be equipped with vent and air holes
to permit movement of air and water between compartments. The partitions shall be designed to provide
maximum water flow. All swash partitions interlock with one another and are completely fused to each other as
well as to the walls of the tank. All partitions and spacing shall comply with NFPA 1901. The walls shall be welded
to the floor of the tank providing maximum strength as part of the tank’s unique Full Floor Design™. Tolerances in
design allow for a maximum variation of 1/8” on all dimensions.
WATER FILL TOWER AND COVER
The tank shall have a combination vent and manual fill tower. The fill tower shall be constructed of 1/2" PT3™
polypropylene and shall be a minimum dimension of 8" x 8" outer perimeter. The fill tower shall be blue in color
indicating that it is a water-only fill tower. The tower shall be located in the left front corner of the tank unless
otherwise specified by the tank manufacturer to the purchaser. The tower shall have a 1/4" thick removable
polypropylene screen and a PT3™ polypropylene hinged cover. The capacity of the tank shall be engraved on the
top of the fill tower lid. Inside the fill tower there shall be a combination vent/overflow pipe. The vent overflow shall
be a minimum of schedule 40 polypropylene pipe with a minimum I.D. of 4" that is designed to run through the
tank, and shall be piped to discharge water behind the rear wheels as required in NFPA 1901 so as to not
interfere with rear tire traction.
The tank cover shall be constructed of 1/2" thick PT3™ polypropylene and UV stabilized, to incorporate a multipiece locking design, which allows for individual removal and inspection if necessary. The tank cover(s) shall be
flush or recessed 3/8" from the top of the tank and shall be fused to the tank walls and longitudinal partitions for
maximum integrity. Each one of the covers shall have hold downs consisting of 2" minimum polypropylene dowels
spaced a maximum of 40” apart. These dowels shall extend through the covers and will assist in keeping the
covers rigid under fast filling conditions. A minimum of two lifting dowels shall accommodate the necessary lifting
hardware.
SUMP
There shall be one (1) sump standard per tank. The sump shall be constructed of a minimum of 1/2" PT3™
polypropylene and be located in the left front quarter of the tank, unless specified otherwise. On all tanks that
require a front suction, a 3" schedule 40 polypropylene pipe shall be installed that will incorporate a dip tube from
the front of the tank to the sump location. The sump shall have a minimum 3" N.P.T. threaded outlet on the
bottom for a drain plug per NFPA. This shall be used as a combination clean-out and drain. All tanks shall have
an anti-swirl plate located approximately 3” above the inside floor.

OUTLETS
There will be two (2) standard tank outlets: one for the tank-to-pump suction line, which shall be sized to provide
adequate water flow to the pump; and, one for tank fill line, which shall be sized according to the NFPA minimum
size chart for booster tanks. All tank fill couplings shall be backed with flow deflectors to break up the stream of
water entering the tank, and be capable of withstanding sustained fill rates of up to 1000 G.P.M. The addition of
rear suction fittings, nurse valve fittings, dump valve fittings, and through-the-tank sleeves to accommodate rear
discharge piping must be specified. All auxiliary outlets and inlets must meet all NFPA guidelines in effect at the
time of manufacture.
MOUNTING
The tank shall rest on the body cross members in conjunction with such additional cross members, spaced at a
distance that would not allow for more than 530 square inches of unsupported area under the tank floor. In cases
where overall height of the tank exceeds 40 inches, cross member spacing must be decreased to allow for not
more than 400 square inches of unsupported area.
The tank must be isolated from the cross members through the use of hard rubber strips with a minimum
thickness and width dimension of 1/4” x 1” and a Shore A Hardness of approximately 60 durometer. The rubber
must be installed so it will not become dislodged during normal operation of the vehicle. Additionally, the tank
must be supported around the entire bottom outside perimeter and captured both in the front and rear as well as
side to side to prevent tank from shifting during vehicle operation.
A picture frame type cradle mount with a minimum of 2" x 2" x 1/4” mild steel, stainless steel, or aluminum angle
shall be provided or the use of corner angles having a minimum dimension of 4" x 4" x 1/4” by 6” high are
permitted for the purpose of capturing the tank.
Although the tank is designed on a free floating suspension principle, it is required that the tank have adequate
vertical hold down restraints to minimize movement during vehicle operation. If proper retention has not been
incorporated into the apparatus hose floor structure, an optional mounting restraint system shall be located on top
of the tank, half way between the front and the rear on each side of the tank. These stops can be constructed of
steel, stainless steel or aluminum angle having minimum dimensions of 3" x 3" x 1/4” and shall be approximately
6” to 12” long. These brackets must incorporate rubber isolating pads with a minimum thickness of 1/4” inch and a
hardness of 60 durometer affixed on the underside of the angle. The angle should then be bolted to the body side
walls of the vehicle while extending down to rest on the top outside edge of the upper side wall of the tank. Hose
beds floors must be so designed that the floor slat supports extend full width from side wall to side wall and are
not permitted to drop off the edge of the tank or in any way come in contact with the individual covers where a
puncture could occur. Tank top must be capable of supporting loads up to 200 lbs per sq. foot when evenly
distributed. Other equipment such as generators, portable pumps, etc. must not be mounted directly to the tank
top unless provisions have been designed into the Poly-Tank® III for that purpose. The tank shall be completely
removable without disturbing or dismantling the apparatus structure.
CENTER OF GRAVITY
A center of gravity calculation shall be determined for each tank and provided as requested in order to provide the
apparatus manufacturer with the necessary data to design and certify the apparatus with respect to the NFPA
requirements regarding rollover stability.
