At some point the water pressure in your building will fluctuate. That’s the simple fact. What happens when that water pressure fluctuates could lead to major issues, if the proper systems are not installed. With a backflow prevention system and regular inspections, you can rest assured that the water in your fire sprinkler system will not pose a greater danger to the city’s drinking water supply. The NFPA sets the standard requirements for sprinkler systems and for the backflow devices used to prevent that water from flowing backwards in the event of lost pressure.
Every building will present challenges for safety of the occupants and the water supply as a whole. A hospital will need a different fire protection system than the retrofitting of an existing warehouse, and the backflow prevention system is no different.
