If you are in a rural area, or even the urban fringe, you should take into account the effects of bushfire on your water tank.

Contamination of tanks from floating ash can be a big issue, and a first-flush device can reduce this problem considerably. Poly tanks can melt down to the waterline if a bushfire gets too close, but in severe fires both metal and concrete tanks can become unusable.

It's always advisable to clear around your tanks, dont stack wood or other combustables close to tanks and it's also a good idea, and in some cases mandatory in a fire prone area to have a CFA outlet fitted to your tank.

Always have your tanks included in your insurance policy.
