Underground Fire Main Repair Services in Houston

If a fire breaks out in your building, are you confident your sprinkler system will kick into gear? And when firefighters arrive, are you certain the indoor stand pipes and outdoor hydrant will supply the water needed to douse the fire with hoses? Sprinklers and hydrants require a properly functioning fire main to connect to the municipal water supply. If something goes wrong with the piping, you need underground fire main repair as fast as possible to avoid putting your building at risk.

Count on Kauffman Co. to repair your underground fire main. We offer 24/7 fire protection services for your convenience and peace of mind. To schedule an appointment, please call Kauffman Co. at 713-893-1090.

The Purpose of Underground Fire Mains

Water is the go-to fire extinguishing agent in typical buildings. This means fire sprinklers, hydrants, and standpipes are fundamental fire-fighting tools for your business. Automatic sprinkler systems stand guard 24/7, ready to put out a blaze the moment they detect intense heat from a fire below. This protection makes your building unlikely to sustain significant damage in a fire. Then, fire hydrants and standpipes provide a place for firefighters to connect their hoses, maximizing fire-extinguishing power with high-pressure water hoses.

Fire sprinklers, hydrants, and standpipes all rely on the same thing to work properly: an underground fire main. This is why repairing problems with your fire main is so critical to your building’s fire protection efforts.

Underground Fire Main Repair Services

The fire main is easy to forget about. It’s hidden underground and only goes to work in the rare case of a fire. However, it’s vital to schedule fire main testing and maintenance to ensure proper functionality and pinpoint any problems with the system. If we uncover any malfunctions during maintenance, we can perform repairs on the spot. You can also schedule repair services between visits if you ever notice something wrong.

We can handle any fire main repair you require, including:

  • Leaks: We sometimes encounter fire main leaks, which occur at the joint where two connecting pipes meet. If this happens, the fire main may fail to deliver adequate water pressure to fight a fire. The leak can also be detrimental to your landscaping, causing soggy spots to appear on the lawn.
  • Catastrophic failure: Aging pipes sometimes struggle to withstand the high pressure and powerful surges characteristic of fire mains. This can cause a joint to fail catastrophically. Sometimes, leaky connections precede total joint failure, making the importance of a speedy, accurate repair quite apparent.

24/7 Underground Fire Main Repair

Regardless of the problem with your underground fire main, you can trust Kauffman Co. to deliver the timely repair you need. Death or serious injury could occur if you attempt to fix a leaky joint while the pipe still under pressure. For your safety, we strongly encourage you to leave the repair work to a professional.

Our experienced crew understands the repair process and the importance of treating pressurized fire mains cautiously. Plus, 24-hour services help limit property damage from a leaking fire main and ensure your building isn’t left vulnerable to fires for long.
