We have a Fire Marshal that is asking us to "show how the fill line can refill the [water supply] tank in a maximum of 8-hours, per NFPA 22 Section 14.4.2".
The tank we're proposing will be supplied by an existing well, but we do not have information on well capacity.
What parameters should we be looking for on well capacity? Do we have to test for both flow and time?
Is the computation on refill as simple as the flow rate (gpm) x time (8-hours) to get the contribution from the well?
Thanks in advance.
