Fire pumps are essential for your whole fire sprinkler system. In the event of a fire, if there is not enough pressure, the sprinkler system is rendered ineffective in battling a blaze. Fire pumps are typically required in high-rise buildings, warehouses, and office spaces with ground-level water tanks in order to increase volume and pressure of water. The fire pump will detect a dip in water pressure below a specific threshold and will automatically turn on to keep your sprinkler powerful enough to combat a fire.
Having a reliable fire protection system is the best way to protect your assets, employees, and business.
Annual fire pump tests and inspections should be performed by a certified fire protection service company, like FireAway. We ensure pipes are aligned, check the circulation relief valves (prevent overheating), and test water flow and pressure.
Requirements of fire pump service and system maintenance are outlined by NFPA 25 and examples of work performed during inspection and testing includes:
