Automatic Sprinkler Inspection, Testing & Maintenance

Overview

Using a Contractor

Many companies contract with a sprinkler service company for sprinkler inspection, testing, and maintenance. This can be a cost effective method of assuring that automatic sprinkler systems are maintained. However, remember the old adage, "You get what you pay for."

A contract or statement of work for sprinkler maintenance must specify the exact inspection, testing, and maintenance required. While most contractors are reputable and provide reliable service, it is easy for a less scrupulous company to provide a "low ball" price that looks attractive to an uniformed building owner. Often times, the services provided are less than complete.

Always get multiple bids for a service contract and compare the prices and services. Proposals that contain few details concerning the specific inspections and testing provided should be suspect. A fire protection engineering firm can assist in the preparation of a comprehensive statement of work, and in evaluating contractor proposals to assure you get what you need.
