Austin Fire Sprinkler Inspections

When there is a fire on your property, your fire sprinkler system is actually the first thing to respond. These systems can control large blazes and can even put out small fires. However, this can only happen if your fire sprinkler system is in working condition. If not, the fire can consume everything you have worked so hard to build.

Fire sprinkler systems can be confusing to the untrained eye. Thus, it is important for you to get regular inspections of your system so that trained technicians can detect and fix any potential problems. This way, you are fully protected in the event of a fire. For a certified fire sprinkler inspection, contact the Austin fire sprinkler professionals from Ace Fire Equipment today at 512-835-2020.

When Should You Have an Inspection?

The National Fire Sprinkler Association recommends that you have your fire sprinkler system inspected at least four times a year, if not more frequently as required by your state. There are several instances when you should not hesitate to have an inspection, including the following:

  • Building additions or remodeling
  • Changes in the water supply
  • Changes in building use
  • Alterations with building occupancy
  • System changes such as adding backflow preventers or water meters

System Components for Inspection

The National Fire Protection Association recommends that people should check their fire sprinkler system control valves at least once a week to make sure that they are open. However, when your system undergoes a formal inspection, there are several different components that must be checked by a licensed technician, including:

  • Water lines
  • Fire pumps
  • Water storage tanks
  • Valves controlling the water flow
  • Electrical components
  • Sprinkler heads/deluge controls

All of these components must be in good condition for the overall system to work as it should. Therefore, you should protect both your investment and your future by having your fire sprinkler system inspected regularly.
