Underground Fire Mains Installation in Houston
A fire main is a dedicated pipe linking the municipal water supply to your building with the sole purpose of putting out fires. This line feeds water to fire hydrants and sprinkler systems, both of which are critical for your building’s fire safety.
If you’re in the process of planning a new facility in the Houston area, count on Kauffman Co. to install your underground fire line during the construction phase. We’ll take care of this critical fire safety component so you can focus on the other facets of planning your new building.

The Importance of Underground Fire Mains
Fire sprinklers, hydrants, and standpipes are all fundamental fire-fighting tools in your arsenal. Buildings with automatic sprinkler systems are far less likely to sustain significant damage in a fire. They stand guard 24/7, ready to douse a blaze the moment high heat triggers one or more sprinkler heads to activate. Then, fire hydrants and standpipes give firefighters a place to hook up their hoses, maximizing fire-fighting power with high-pressure water.
Of course, your building can’t benefit from fire sprinklers, hydrants, and standpipes without an underground fire main to feed water to these fixtures. This makes fire main installation a critical facet of your building’s fire protection efforts.

Underground Fire Line Installation Services
For fire safety and code compliance reasons, it’s obvious that your Houston building can’t go without an underground fire line. When it’s time to have one installed on your commercial property, Kauffman Co. is the right fire protection company for the job. We carefully follow NFPA 24: Standard for the Installation of Private Fire Service Mains and Their Appurtenances to ensure a safe, effective, and code-compliant installation.
The process entails digging a trench on your property to put in the water pipe and all necessary appurtenances. An up-to-code installation ensures the plumbing joints are properly secured to withstand the high water pressure characteristic of fire mains.
Components of an Underground Fire Main
Single-family fire lines are quite straightforward, often involving nothing more than the fire main itself connected to a hydrant near the curb. On the other hand, most commercial and industrial fire lines are quite complex. A matrix of components may be incorporated into your project, including:
- Dedicated waterlines
- Fire hydrants
- Fire sprinklers
- Automatic sprinkler risers
- Post indicator valves
- Municipal connections
- Fire department connections
- Other underground installation systems
