Underground Water Tank
This is the 6,000 gal tank coverd with 3+ ft of dirt. As you can see from the back ground it comes in handy! I put this in while the fire was still burning. Used water out of it to put a lot of hot spots out with. That hill is where the fire came down to my home with 30 mph wind driving it. got to 10 ft of the buildings and it jumped the fire line too. Lucky I had the place all wet or we would have lost it all. Flames were over 100 ft tall in that brush and the gas fire ball rolled over the fire break around 40-50 ft. like a big wave that is when I ran for cover. You can see the small hose fill pipe and the 2 inch suction pip along with the 4 inch capped pipe for a hose to be droped into the tank to pump out of it. There is a 3 ft square 1/4 inch thick plate bolted to the top of the tank to get access inside if needed under the dirt. Mark H.
