Fire pumps are responsible for creating water pressure adequate enough to operate fire sprinkler systems whenever they’re needed. Pumps tend to be more common in buildings that can’t access public water supply, or where the public water line’s existing pressure is too low.
Are you concerned your building’s old fire pump won’t perform when necessary? Have you modified your workplace or expanded your office and want to make sure your fire suppression system is still up to code? Our experienced technicians at Pittsburgh Fire Sprinkler in Greater Pittsburgh, PA, can help with all of the above and more. We offer professional fire pump testing and replacement services for maximum fire emergency protection. Read below to learn more about our service details.
Regular Inspection and Testing
Pittsburgh Fire Sprinkler performs annual fire pump inspections and testing. This test validates that your pump meets manufacturer specifications and system requirements. We inspect and test both diesel-fueled and electric-powered pumps.
Our professional fire pump testing services involve various checks. We inspect your pump’s valves, piping, controller, cooling equipment, and automatic start, among other components, such as transfer of power, ensuring your pump will operate in an emergency situation. If your fire pump has failed the annual performance test, we will advise of any corrective actions that should occur to bring the pump to optimal working conditions.
