WHAT IS FIREWATER & HOW DO WE CONTAIN IT?
Firewater is the water used to extinguish fires that may spill off-site and cause damage to the natural and surrounding environment. If firewater gets into surface drains, it has a devastating effect on aquatic life.
Not all firewater can be contained by the fire service, therefore business owners are responsible for removing the firewater in accordance with various legislations, such as GPP3 18 & C736.
Our firewater containment systems, like our Flapstopper Box Valves, are the perfect solution to contain firewater spills in line with legislation for your site.
