Automatic Sprinkler Inspection, Testing & Maintenance

Summary

Every sprinkler control valve must be inspected to assure it is in the proper position (usually open), is properly locked or sealed, is free of damage and leaks, is accessible, and is provided with an appropriate wrench. Inspection frequency depends on the method of valve supervision.

A main drain test must be conducted on every sprinkler system at least yearly. In addition to the main drain test, other tests are required depending on the type of sprinkler system.

Other system components require regular testing including, automatic sprinkler heads, sprinkler system gauges, alarm devices, low air pressure switches, quick opening devices, and anti-freeze solutions.

All sprinkler control valves must be operated through their full range of movement at least annually.

In addition to the regular inspection and testing of sprinkler valves, they also require routine maintenance to remain operable.

Some sprinkler system components must be repaired or replaced on a specific schedule. Other components must be repaired when damage is detected during routine inspections and tests.
