Are you familiar with the different components of your fire sprinkler system? One of the most important parts is the fire pump. If this equipment breaks down, the sprinkler heads may still react to heat from the flames below, but the water flow may be insufficient to douse the blaze.
Don’t leave your business vulnerable—schedule fire pump repair with Kauffman Co. if you suspect this fire sprinkler component has stopped working properly. Call (713) 893-1090 or contact us online!
The primary function of a fire pump is to ensure adequate water pressure within a fire sprinkler system. When a sprinkler head activates and the water starts flowing, the fire pump keeps tabs on the pressure. If it dips below a certain threshold, the pump kicks on automatically to supplement the flow and ensure the sprinkler heads perform the way they’re intended.
High rise buildings are the most common places to install fire pumps, though any building with low pressure from the local municipal water system could benefit from a fire pump installation. Sprinkler performance issues can even occur in small buildings with good water pressure if multiple sprinkler heads engage simultaneously or if firefighters connect a hose to an exterior fire hydrant or interior standpipe. This means fire pumps could be a necessary fire protection investment for almost any type of building.
While the best way to keep your fire pump running properly is with routine inspections, testing, and maintenance, it’s still possible for the equipment to break down between formal visits from a Kauffman Co. technician. Here are the signs that indicate you should schedule fire pump repair:
