A Diesel Fire Pump is an Important Part of Your Fire Sprinkler System
If your commercial space has fire sprinklers, then you certainly have a fire pump on site. The diesel fire pump is part of the fire sprinkler system. It’s role is to intake water from public utility or tank and increase water pressure for fire sprinklers. The fire pump plays a critical role in allowing sprinklers to spray more water at a higher pressure to suppress the spread of flames. Cooper Electrical Services offers quarterly diesel fire pump inspection and maintenance in the greater Myrtle Beach area.
Diesel Fire Pump Inspection and Maintenance is Important and Required
Rarely do we envision our business or workplace engulfed in flames. And while fires may be a statistically low threat, it is vital to prepare for the possibility. Part of the preparation is regularly inspecting the fire sprinkler system and fire pump so that should a fire erupt, the fire pump can quickly push large volumes of water through the sprinkler system.
Fire pump maintenance is also a crucial component of South Carolina and National Fire Prevention Association building code and compliance, and failing to have your diesel fire pump maintained and inspected could lead to costly violations.
