A fire sprinkler system can be crucial to protecting your business or organization from the dangers and damages of a fire. Installing or replacing a fire pump ensures that your fire sprinkler system will have enough water pressure to protect your company’s most valuable assets in the event of an emergency.
If you are relying on an already-installed fire sprinkler system to protect your Houston-area office, you may not have enough water pressure to effectively diffuse a fire. Imagine finding your building and equipment destroyed after a holiday weekend because the sprinkler heads reacted to smoke and flames, but couldn’t put out the fire properly due to a dip in water pressure.

A fire pump is often necessary to ensure that your fire sprinkler system is capable of getting water distributed throughout the whole building to successfully suppress a fire. When we install or replace your fire pump system, our skilled technicians will make sure that your fire pumps are able to provide enough pressure for your entire building.
When one or more fire sprinkler is exposed to heat above a set-temperature, they open and release water. Fire pumps work to ensure enough water is released from the sprinkler heads. As part of your fire sprinkler system’s water supply, fire pumps can be powered by electric, diesel, or steam and are calculated throughout your building to provide steady water throughout your work space.
High-rises, larger buildings (such as warehouses), and offices with ground-level water tanks usually require fire pumps to increase volume and pressure of water. When the pumps detect a dip in water pressure below a specific threshold, they will automatically turn on to help your sprinkler system battle the fire.

Many businesses add fire pumps to their sprinkler systems to protect their company from a fire emergency. However, without performing regular inspections, the pressure of the pumps may not activate properly when there is a fire, leaving your business unprotected.
The only way to be certain that your fire pump with keep you protected is to test it regularly. A weekly test should be performed to run the fire pump motor (similar to starting a car on a cold morning). An annual fire pump inspection to test the flow of water should be performed from a Houston fire protection service company, like Kauffman Co.
