Wet Sprinkler Systems

Kane Fire Protection

What is a Wet Sprinkler System?

Wet fire sprinkler systems (or wet pipe sprinklers) utilize automatic sprinkler heads that are attached to a piping system connected to a water supply. When the sprinkler system is activated by the heat of a fire, water is released from the sprinkler heads.

These systems are one of the most common and come with many advantages including: reliability, easy modification, and short term down time after a fire incident. If your facility encounters below freezing temperature or if you are in a building where damage to the pipes is likely to occur, then we don’t recommend using the wet sprinkler system. Take a look at some of our other options or contact us for more information at (314) 310-1585.

Tripped alarm

This could be a sign of a bad device (flow switch/pressure switch) or could mean you have a leak on a dry system and the air compressor can’t keep up.

Corrosion

The best way to tell if you are dealing with corrosion is if you see signs of rust, discolored water, or smell a foul odor. You can tell whether or not there are signs of rust by looking for a green tint on the exterior of your sprinkler head or pipes.

Leakage

You can determine whether or not there is leakage if you start to notice watermarks on your ceiling or if your sprinkler heads start to drip or spray. 

Wet Fire Sprinkler System Inspections

Even though our design systems and installation are tested and proven to be reliable, regular testing is critical to ensure safety in your building. Chances are, your wet sprinkler system sits idle a majority of the time, making it easy for any breaks or problems to go unnoticed. Having your system regularly tested not only protects your investment in the system, but also protects your building and its occupants.

Regular fire sprinkler testing is also required by the IFC (International Fire Code) and the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association Codes). Our detailed inspections help keep you up to date on the state of your fire sprinkler system without feeling overwhelmed. Our testing process includes inspection of air pressure level, water pressure levels, fire alarms, water flow alarms, and connections to the pump, tank and fire department.
