What Happens During an NFPA 25 Sprinkler Inspection?
There are four basic types of fire sprinkler systems. They include dry, wet, deluge, and pre-action systems. Each system has similar components that need to undergo a 5-year sprinkler system inspection. Some of the services included in a fire sprinkler system investigation include:
The gauges in your system should be replaced every five years. They should also be tested in comparison to a gauge that is calibrated. It is most cost-effective to routinely have the gauges changed every five years.
Fire Sprinkler Heads
Another component is the fire sprinkler head. We visually inspect them and can have them sent to a laboratory for further testing and exposing them to harsh conditions. All sprinkler heads should be replaced as necessary.
Water Storage Tank
If your building has a water storage tank, the interior of the water tank should be checked every five years. The technician will look for signs of corrosion and pitting.
Private Service Water Main
This type of water main provides water for your building’s fire sprinkler system. It can be either exposed above or underground piping. Every five years you should have a flow test performed on your water main.
A flow test determines the condition of your pipes. A technician will check the hose, main drain, and connection for the fire department. They’ll review previous test results and compare them to the new ones.
As we mentioned earlier, one of the most essential parts of a 5-year investigation is the technician looking for obstructions. Detecting the presence of foreign materials is vital to ensuring the longevity of your sprinkler system.
