Importance of Maintenance and Inspection

Fire sprinkler system upkeep is essential in any kind of property to provide protection against fire hazards. Regular maintenance and inspection will help you to identify issues early and save money on costly repairs.

It is important to have an adequate flow of water delivered to the sprinkler system for it to function correctly. If the pressure is low, the sprinklers will not work to their full potential and the fire may spread to other places.

The National Fire Protection Association provides a comprehensive integrated approach to fire code regulation and hazard management. Every building, process and service is affected by NFPA’s 275+ codes and standards. For more information, speak to us.

We Are Experienced in the Testing Requirements of Various System Types

Sprinkler systems are specifically engineered for various applications, making installation, maintenance and inspection a complicated process. At Pacific Coast Fire Equipment, we understand that dry systems, wet systems and deluge systems all have their own specific testing requirements. Our certified technicians can provide inspections for:

  • Wet and dry sprinkler systems

  • Standpipe systems

  • Residential sprinkler systems

  • Deluge and pre-action systems

  • Fire pumps

  • Water reservoirs

  • Cross-connection/backflow

  • Standpipe and hose systems

  • Fire hydrants

  • Fire department connections

Winterize Your Fire Sprinkler System

Cold weather can cause your fire sprinkler system to cease to function or burst by freezing the water inside the pipes. To avoid this situation, you can add an antifreeze system and get your system inspected. You can also try to keep the cold air out which reduces the risk of freezing pipes.


When to Perform Testing and Maintenance?

There are guidelines provided by the fire and building codes on how and when to perform testing and maintenance of a fire sprinkler system. There are various components which may require regular checks. According to NFPA 25, the following inspection schedule should be followed:

• Weekly or monthly - Inspection of gauges in dry, pre-action and deluge systems must be done once a week. Wet pipe system gauges are inspected monthly.

• Quarterly – You must get the water flow alarm devices, along with the valve supervisory and hydraulic nameplates inspected once every three months.

• Annually – Inspect the hanger, pipes and fittings once a year.

• Every five years – An internal inspection of sprinkler piping is required once in every five years.
