Automatic Sprinkler Inspection, Testing & Maintenance

Summary

The requirements for the inspection, testing, and maintenance of all types of automatic sprinkler systems are found in NFPA 25.

The owner of a property is fully responsible for inspecting, testing, and maintaining the building sprinkler systems.

Always follow proper impairment handling procedures when tests or maintenance require shutdown of the system.

Sprinkler valves for wet-pipe, dry-pipe, deluge, and preaction systems must be inspected to verify normal water supply pressure, that there is no physical damage, and that there is no leakage from the valve or trim piping. The extent of the inspection and the inspection frequency depend on the type of sprinkler valve.

Other system components also require regular inspection, including strainers, filters, orifices, alarm devices, backflow prevention assemblies, fire department connections, piping, sprinklers, spare sprinklers, and the conditions with the building.
