Important Winter System Maintenance

Wet Sprinkler Systems – Schedule your wet sprinkler inspection to ensure it is at a minimum of 40⁰F or your antifreeze loop is maintained at the proper level per code requirements.

Dry Sprinkler Systems – Auxiliary drains on your system must be drained before the onset of freezing weather conditions and thereafter as needed.

Hydrants – Let us maintain your hydrants so water doesn’t freeze inside them and prevent proper use during an emergency.

Fire Pumps – Since fire pumps aid in providing the proper water pressure and volume for your sprinkler system, get them inspected before the temperature drops.



Consistent cold temperatures are right around the corner, so schedule your inspections today.

Fire Pumps

Depending on how your building is laid out and how your sprinkler system works – it might not be able to control or extinguish fires unless there is enough water pressure. When this occurs, you’ll need to make sure there’s a fire pump installed and if there isn’t one – that you have one put in.

Fire pumps come in all sorts of different makes and models. It’s important to understand what each one does – as its ability to pump water will have a significant impact on your fire safety planning. Here are some of the most popular fire pumps that you’ll encounter, what they do and what makes them appealing as well as what their limitations are.

Horizontal Split Case

Horizontal Split Cases are by far the most popular fire pump out on the market today. While it needs its own water source and isn’t necessarily a part of your fire suppression system, it’s still surprisingly easy to work with. In fact, if you ask a fire safety pro, most will probably say this is their preferred pump to work with.

Not only are the parts easy to maintain, but these systems can last for years and are among the most reliable pumps on the market.

Vertical Split Cases

Vertical split cases are basically the exact same thing as a horizontal split case – except they have vertical components. The good thing about this model is that it takes up significantly less floor space than their cousins. This is important – especially in small buildings where space is at more of a premium. These systems are built to go ‘up’ as opposed to out.

Vertical In-line

Vertical in-line pumps are a little different from split-case pumps in the sense that they’re a lot smaller. Like Vertical split cases, their primary claim to fame is that they save space in buildings where there isn’t much room to be had. They do need a special base to anchor them though, and they can be a pain for service professionals when it comes time for preventative maintenance. Just to get at some of the most basic components, the system has to be taken apart. So while they work great and save you a ton of space (they’re also ultra-durable), they’re a little bit of a bear when it comes to simple service.

Think of them as a higher-end sports car. They’ll last forever, they handle, drive and look great and you can be sure you won’t deal with many issues. But when you do – it’s expensive.

Vertical Turbine

No matter what kind of system you have, they all require some sort of positive suction to draw water from an outside source. Not with a vertical turbine, though. Instead, these pumps can use water drawn from nearby wells and tanks. It’s then moved to the top and is used whenever it needs to be. The motor is almost always located on top of the pump as well – making it both easy to monitor and maintain.
