Requirements of fire suppression system maintenance are outlined by NFPA 25 and examples of work performed during inspections include:

  1. Identification of unfavorable site conditions that could possibly compromise the performance of the sprinkler system.
  2. Ensure there is enough coverage, clearance, and condition of sprinkler heads if they should become activated.
  3. Verify that sprinkler control valves are in the proper position, good working condition, monitored or secured, accessible, operated through their full range of motion, and appropriate signage is in place.
  4. Performance of tests for water flow or water pressure devices.
  5. Complete main drain test on each system.
  6. Recording of static and residual pressures to confirm no blockages are in supply line piping.
  7. Check the Fire Department connection caps, couplings, threads, and clapper.
  8. Check the valve and ball drip condition, make sure the unit is not leaking.
  9. Inspection and testing of the fire sprinkler system alarm components for good condition, proper alarm tie-in, and activation.
  10. Verify the quantity and styles of spare sprinkler heads in spare head box.
  11. Make sure there are proper quantities of sprinkler heads and the correct wrench is located in the spare head box.
  12. Inspection of the general condition of visible sprinkler system piping, hangers, drain valves, gauges, and related equipment. 
  13. Inspect and test dry system operation.
  14. When applicable, inspect and test dry system air compressor for proper activation and pressure.
  15. When applicable, inspect dry valve according to the manufacturer's specifications (internal inspection and cleaning of valve body, clapper, latching mechanism, trim, and gaskets).
  16. When applicable, flow the system priming lines and clean strainers thoroughly.
  17. Inquire about changes or modifications to the to the building or sprinkler system that might affect the performance.
  18. ​Upon completion of sprinkler inspection and any necessary maintenance, applicable inspection documents and noted deficiencies shall be left at location and are available electronically upon request.
  19. Tag all devices as per requirements and perform required record keeping.
  20. ​When applicable, perform standpipe flow test as required by code.
  21. ​When applicable, check and record the priming water pressure.
  22. ​When applicable, complete the required annual partial trip test or three-year full flow trip test.

Some of these items may vary depending on the type of sprinkler system  you have installed.

Fire Sprinkler Systems

We provide Expert Design and Installation of:
Wet Sprinkler Systems
Dry Sprinkler Systems
Preaction Systems
Deluge Systems
​Standpipe Systems​
Foam Systems

Wet Sprinkler Systems
Wet Sprinkler Systems are the "normal" sprinkler you would see in any office or place of residence as they are the most common and cost-effective. These sprinklers utilize water as the extinguishing agent and are designed to discharge at a certain temperature depending on the purpose and location. 

Dry Sprinkler Systems
A Dry Sprinkler System is a device designed for unconditioned spaces where temperatures could fall below 40° F. These sprinklers are charged with air or nitrogen (a water charged sprinkler could freeze). This kind of sprinkler system requires more maintenance than a normal sprinkler.

Preaction Sprinkler Systems
Preaction fire sprinkler systems uses some attributes of a dry system with the promptness of an early warning detection system. Common applications include locations where accidentally activating it could damage high value assets found in data centers, museums, and others. 

Deluge Sprinkler Systems
The preaction sprinkler and the deluge fire sprinkler system have a couple things in common, like the open-type sprinkler head and pipes that are not pressurized by air. Once the deluge system detects smoke or heat it, all its sprinklers release water to prevent rapidly-spreading fires in places like aircraft hangars. 

Standpipe Sprinkler Systems
A Standpipe Fire Sprinkler System is generally used by the fire department. Its series of piping connects a water supply to hose connections.

Foam Sprinkler Systems
Foam Sprinkler Systems, as true to their name, use foam and water to extinguish fires. This system is used for industrial and high-hazard applications. This system his highly effective in controlling flammable liquid fires. These are commonly found in power plants, aircraft hangars, or chemical storage facilities.
