Fire Sprinkler Inspections in Nassau County

The National Fire Protection Association’s Standard # 25 for inspections, testing and maintenance of a fire sprinkler system was adopted by New York City in 2012. The requirements of NFPA 25 are relevant to all city buildings that are sprinklered,  including plenty that were previously exempt and now must comply.

FDNY Enforcement of Fire Sprinkler Regulations

All sprinklered facilities throughout Nassau County, whether it be commercial or residential, are  required to have the inspection regimen of NFPA25 performed by a licensed Master Fire sprinkler contractor and holder of an FDNY Certificate of Fitness.

FDNY regulations may be confusing and difficult to decipher for those without fire sprinkler expertise. Nevertheless, these inspections and testing requirements are mandatory, and violations are regularly issued.

NFPA 25 is designed to standardize, clarify and enhance the types and frequency of fire sprinkler inspections that are required. Various categories of inspections and maintenance must be performed at regular intervals ranging from weekly visual checks to a thorough internal obstruction inspection every five years.

What to Expect When You  Hire Allstate Sprinkler to perform NFPA25 Inspections

We’re here to help you understand and fully comply with all FDNY inspection requirements. There are four basic levels of Fire Sprinkler inspections:

  1. Weekly
  2. Monthly
  3. Quarterly
  4. Annually

Each frequency of inspection has different requirements, but all are mandatory according to NFPA 25, and accurate records of all inspections are required.

Weekly Inspections

NFPA 25 has numerous points for weekly visual inspection. It expects building occupants or owners to perform these weekly inspections. This may also require a weekly fire pump churn test, if applicable.

You can perform the weekly visual inspections yourself, or Allstate Sprinkler can perform them for you. Maintaining records of these inspections can significantly help you if you receive a violation. We maintain all records of every fire sprinkler inspection in Nassau County and the surrounding areas, and can provide both hard copies and digital records upon request by the FDNY.

Monthly Inspections

Monthly inspections are more in depth than the weekly regimen and we maintain all records of these on file to comply with FDNY requirements.

In addition to the weekly inspection regimen, the monthly inspection includes, but is not limited to the visual inspection of the following components:

  • Control valves’ locks and/or tamper-evident seals and switches.
  • Air pressure and temperature alarms.
  • All gauges, including wet, dry, pre-action and deluge systems
  • All alarm valves.
  • Automatic tank fill valves.
  • All dry pipe valves and their heated enclosures.
  • Spare parts cabinet including replacement/spare sprinkler heads with the correct temperature rating and sprinkler head replacement wrench.
  • Tank water level(s) and temperature.
  • Fire department connection(s).
  • Backflow device.
  • Booster and jockey pumps.

Quarterly Inspections

Quarterly inspections include all of the monthly inspection requirements in addition to a much more detailed visual and hands-on testing regimen. The quarterly fire sprinkler inspection now includes confirming adequate pressure readings and testing water flow and tamper switches. Post indicating valves and priming levels must also be tested and drain tests for backflow devices need to be performed. The fire sprinkler riser will also be inspected to ensure that the hydraulic nameplate, if applicable, is attached and legible.

Annual Inspections

The annual inspection includes all monthly and quarterly points but has a few additional requirements. All components of the system(s) are visually inspected, potential obstructions are identified, and an assessment is made to determine if the requirements of the system have changed. Each sprinkler control valve is tested, pumps are operated and water flow is measured.

Every fifth year, an internal obstruction assessment is performed during the annual test.
