A recent research project involving the Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre (Bushfire CRC) and the CSIRO has revealed that different types of rainwater tanks can play an important role in defending houses against the threat of a bushfire.

The research project was conducted in the NSW Rural Fire Service experimental research facility at Mogo on the south coast of NSW.

The research investigated the effects of typical Australian bushfire exposures on both residential and commercial water tanks of steel and plastic construction.

The project received support and cooperation from BlueScope Water.
