Fire Sprinkler Systems

Fire Sprinkler System Inspections and Maintenance

Fire sprinkler systems are a type of fire suppression system designed to extinguish fire quickly and effectively. These systems include sprinkler heads, pipes, pumps, and are most likely tied to your municipal water supply. Sprinkler systems must provide coverage for the entire building and allows occupants to evacuate while suppressing or extinguishing the fire. Annual inspections are required by law and essential to ensure their reliability and effectiveness. Testing is also completed every three to five years in compliance with NFPA 25.

The NFPA 25 has very detailed instructions on annual testing and inspection procedures. Due to their complexity, fire sprinkler inspections and tests should only be performed by licensed sprinkler contractors.

  • All sprinklers, hangers, and pipes will be tested to ensure they are in good, working condition.
  • Main drain tests are conducted on all sprinkler systems to verify control valves are in the open position and working properly.
  • Dry pipe valves undergo a throttle trip test and resetting.
  • Deluge valves should have a full trip test at least once a year. The maximum frequency between full trip tests should be within three years.
  • Nozzles on water spray systems are to be visually inspected and tested for proper flow.
  • The system strainer should be removed and visually inspected for damage. Any corroded parts should then be replaced.

Depending on the size of your building and sprinkler system, inspections and tesing can take anywhere from four hours to multiple days. To learn more about our fire sprinkler system inspections/testing or to schedule a service, please contact us at (817) 809-8677 or submit a contact form below!
