Legislation to Protect the Public

With the increased senseless loss of life due to fires, Governor Cuomo is enhancing legislation to protect the public.  These include legislation (S5212A, A7641A) that require prospective tenants to be notified in writing as to whether or not certain homes are installed with a fire sprinkler system.  He also signed into legislation (A7916A, S4610A) requiring builders of certain family housing to provide buyers with information on the installation and maintenance of automatic sprinkler systems.

Quick FAQ....

I have a standpipe system with two risers. The original design indicates a total flow of 750 gpm (2839 Lpm). Am I required to flow this much water for the five year flow test?

No. When conducting the five year flow test, one riser is tested at a time. Therefore, the flow should be a total of 500 gpm (1892 Lpm), 250 gpm (946 lpm) for each of the two topmost outlets.
