Fire Pump Inspection& Testing FAQs
Why do fire pumps require regular maintenance?
Regular maintenance helps identify loose connections, faulty components, blockages, and frayed wires that can cause a fire pump to fail when a fire erupts—as with any mechanical system, ignoring maintenance can result in a costly and potentially fatal system failure.
What can affect pipe couplings?
Pipe couplings can come loose for any number of reasons. Thermal expansion and poor maintenance are the most common. However, remodeling, impacts with equipment, and employee carelessness can also cause them to come apart.
What systems are tested during a weekly fire pump inspection?
Each system is different, but in general, a weekly fire pump inspection should include checking ventilation, valves, gauges, electrical systems, and fuel/oil levels.
