5-Year Obstruction Investigation and Prevention

5-Year internal inspection is a requirement of NFPA 25. Sprinkler systems can have corrosion and sludge in the piping systems that can cause obstructions to water flow. This may create an issue if a head was to activate due to a fire condition and be blocked by an obstruction. NFPA 25 Chapter 14 calls for a test every 5-years which involves opening the end of one branchline and one main, and inspected for obstructions. Call Petcosky Fire Protection today to schedule your 5-Year Obstruction Investigation.

Sprinkler Head Testing

According to NFPA 25, if your sprinkler heads on your sprinkler system are older than 1920, they need to be replaced. If your heads are older than 50 years, they need to have a representative sample tested by an approved testing agency, or be replaced. Petcosky Fire can remove and send your representative sample of the sprinklers to Underwriter Laboratories for testing. We will handle the complete process from system shutdown to replacing the heads being sent for testing and recharging your fire sprinkler system. Call Petcosky Fire Protection today for your sprinkler head testing.
