Water Supplies for Sprinkler Systems Summary

An adequate water supply ensures that the sprinkler system will operate effectively in a fire

A well-designed sprinkler system is a highly effective method of minimizing property damage from a fire. But simply installing a sprinkler system doesn't guarantee adequate fire protection. Water supply is a critical component.

For example:

  • A reliable water supply is required for the system to be effective.
  • A water supply needs appropriate capacity, quality, pressure, and temperature.
  • Regular maintenance and testing of water supply sources is vital to ensure that the water supply is adequate at all times.
