Introduction to Fire Pumps

Introduction

Properties of Water

There are a number of agents that are used to suppress a fire, but the most universal agent is still water. An old cliché says that if you want to put the fire out, “put the wet stuff on the red stuff." Water is still the agent of choice for most fires, and depending on the fuel, the amount necessary to control or suppress a fire will vary.

Fire pumps are often required to pressurize an available supply of water for fire protection purposes.  Systems that use water will control a fire more effectively and efficiently in many cases if a higher pressure is available to the system.
