From Derek 'Handeeman' Howlett:
You may be in the predicament that your local county is requiring a storage tank for fire suppression so you can get your certificate of occupancy.
This could be a total surprise for you but at Handeeman Contracting, we'll make the process of getting a tank installed for your home or business a breeze.
We have plenty of tank sizes to meet your fire marshall's recommendations along with bulkhead fittings ranging from 4" to 12" and beyond.
Poly tanks (polyethylene) can become unstable under the stress of radiant heat exposure and our galvanized steel water tanks perform better in these circumstances.
One thing I constantly tell myself is, "Let's do this right, so we only have to do it once". At Handeeman Contracting, my goal is to help you with a tank that will stand the test of time and supply you with water when you need it most.
I look forward to hearing from you!
