Know How Often the Fire Sprinkler System Should Be Inspected
To ensure that your building remains protected from fire, it’s crucial that you maintain your sprinkler system. Part of that process involves routine system inspections. At Master Fire Prevention, we install, inspect, and maintain fire sprinkler systems in New York. In keeping with the guidelines set by the National Fire Protection Association, we recommend that building owners and managers follow this schedule:
Weekly / Monthly – For dry, pre-action, and deluge fire protection systems, check the gauges once a week; if your building uses a wet pipe system, you can check the gauges once a month.
Quarterly – Inspect your system’s control valves, water flow alarm devices, supervisory signal devices, valve supervisory alarm devices, and hydraulic nameplates.
Yearly – Inspect your system’s pipes and fittings, hanger/seismic bracing, spare sprinklers, and information signage.
Every 5 Years – Perform an internal inspection of the system’s sprinkler piping.
