Fire Sprinkler Inspection

  • Test the main drain and tag each riser with main drain results and alarm times
    • Including static (resting) and residual (flowing) pressure
  • Time water flow switches to maintain a designated delay setting
    • Should activate the alarm within 30-60 seconds
    • If the alarm sounds too quick or slow, we re-adjust the switch
  • Exercise control valves
  • Test all valve tamper switches to confirm the panel is receiving a signal upon activation
  • Make sure supervisory, local and electric alarms are operating properly
  • Check for recalled sprinkler heads throughout the building
  • Inspect sprinkler system piping for external damage
  • Inspect fire department connections to ensure they meet with local fire dept. requirements
    • The caps must be intact and the connection must swivel for fire department to hook up hoses
  • Inspect sprinkler heads for proper temperature ratings, damage, corrosion, or obstruction
  • Trip-test dry pipe valves and quick opening devices
  • Drain Dry System low points
  • Take a sample of the antifreeze solution to determine freeze point and tag the system
