Local Authorities having jurisdiction or (AHJ)’s require property owners to follow codes based on National Fire Protection Association or (NFPA) standards , New York State building code (based on IBC), and local ordinances . These codes lay out the testing requirements for fire protection systems. The requirements vary from system to system. In fire sprinkler system testing, communication from your contractor to identify the proper operation of all components to the property owner or his representative, along with the required documentation is essential for minimizing property damage risk and complying with local jurisdictions.

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.
