Fire Pumps

All commercial properties are required to have an up-to-date, adequate fire suppression and protection system. In addition to alarm systems and fire extinguishers, most buildings require a fire sprinkler system in order to put out or contain large fires. These sprinkler systems require large amounts of water that may not be immediately available. In addition, carrying this water to high levels, such as the top level of an apartment building, takes a large amount of energy. A fire pump is an important part of the sprinkler system that brings large amounts of water into the system and carries it up many stories.

The intake of a fire pump is connected either to the public underground water supply or to a separate, static water source, such as a tank or a reservoir. When the pressure in the entire fire sprinkler system drops because a fire sprinkler initiates, the fire pump begins to bring water from these underground sources up to the top of the building in large, continuous volumes– a feat that many local water systems cannot perform alone. Different pumps can be powered by electric, steam, or diesel sources, and are used in sprinkler systems in very tall buildings, in storage warehouses that require a large volume of water, and in areas where the local water supply is provided from a ground-level tank.

A fire pump is a complex piece of machinery that must be serviced regularly in order to ensure the proper functioning of the entire fire sprinkler system. Without regular maintenance and upkeep, the fire pump could malfunction or fail at the moment when it is needed most. Therefore, it is important to trust your fire safety inspections to a certified, experienced team of professionals to keep your property protected from the threat of fire.
