It is suggested that Property owners supply their own domestic water (minimum 120,000 litre tank) for potable use and for emergency structural fire fighting purposes.
Each property should at all times store a minimum of 10,000 litres of water for fire fighting purposes and each owner shall be responsible to replenish water used by fire fighters at the property owner's cost.
The water outlet for domestic use shall have a take-off point above the bottom of the tank that always leaves 10,000 litres of water in the tank for structural fire fighting purposes.
To enable standardisation of access to this supply, each private domestic vessel shall be fitted with a 40mm camlok with a blanking cap and ball valve at the bottom of the tank. This coupling and valve shall be installed and maintained in a correct operating condition at all times at the property owner's expense.
The domestic vessel shall be located in an area that wil enable fire appliances to quickly access the water supply. Loop access to allow passage of more than one fire appliance should be provided.
