Ensuring that your fire sprinklers & control systems provide you with adequate protection in the event of an incident requires no small amount of maintenance and attention. If this sounds like a hassle to you, consider how this will enable the system to keep you and yours protected in the event that a fire should break out. These systems don’t take care of themselves, reliable they may be. So to help you ensure that they continue to perform whenever they are needed, here is when and how you should inspect them for a need for maintenance.
Once a Week
If you are using dry fire suppression systems, you should take time out every week to inspect their gauges thoroughly. Wet systems can generally go for quite a bit longer and only need inspection every month or so; but still, it wouldn’t hurt to check these weekly as well.
Every three to four months you should check a number of the componants associated with your fire system to ensure that everything is in order. Wherever problems are found, you should work to have them rectified or replaced as soon as possible. You can start by taking a look at the water flow alarm devices, control valves and signal devices. Each of these components plays a pivotal role in the functioning of your suppression system, and so should be inspected around 4 times a year to make sure they are doing what they should.
Your yearly inspection should be incredibly thorough, and this is the time to keep an eye on the infrastructure of your system. Closely inspect the bracing, pipes and fittings, alongside information signage. If you have any spare components in storage, be sure to inspect and test them as well.
