Why Should Sprinklers be Serviced, Tested & Maintained?
It is important to ensure that every component within a sprinker system operates correctly in the event of a fire. BS EN 12845:2015 stipulates the maintenance and servicing requirements to ensure fault free operation in the event of fire. If you have a sprinkler system which is not being maintained properly, your insurance may be invalid and you may be committing a criminal offence under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
User Inspections & Weekly Tests
The Responsible Person must ensure that each week, a series of checks and tests are carried out and documented. These checks/tests consist of:
- Checking all water and air pressure gauge readings on installations, trunk mains and pressure tanks are correct
- Checking all water levels are correct in storage tanks, private reservoirs, canals, or lakes if they are used to provide water to the system
- Checking valves are set in the correct position and locked off using the correct straps or chains.
- Automatic pump starting test
- Diesel engine restarting test
- Checking all trace heating & localised heating systems to ensure correct operation
