Fire Pump Inspection Service in British Columbia

Fire pumps are available in diesel and electric types, and range in size and GPM output. They are often installed where the water supply is not adequate to meet the sprinkler system demand. Fire pumps and associated devices are needed to be periodically inspected, tested, and maintained by Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. Fire pumps must be ran weekly/monthly and inspected annually to make sure the equipment operates as intended.

Annual fire pump testing verifies that your fire pump is operating correctly and will be able to respond to a call to service. Despite whether you have a diesel or electrically driven fire pump, there are a few things you can do to guarantee the annual test is meaningful.

Why Fire Pump is Required

Especially if your building is a highrise, then water pressure tends to be lower. Therefore, installing a fire pump is needed to maintain the required water pressure level. By boosting water pressure like this, a fire pump makes sure your sprinklers and standpipe system functions appropriately in case of a fire.

Inspection Requirements:

  • Water reservoir: maintain it at proper levels.
  • Air temperature in the pump room: must never fall below the minimum recommended by the engine manufacturer, or 4° C, whichever is higher
  • Pumps: Operate at rated speeds until you can verify the pump, driver and controller are working properly (10 minutes for electric, 30 minutes for diesel).
  • Electric motors may be tested monthly.
  • Internal combustion engine fire pumps: Operate long enough to bring the engines up to normal operating temperatures. Maintain storage batteries, lubrication systems, oil and fuel supplies at the correct levels.
