 Inspections - Deluge      

A deluge system is similar to a pre-action system except the sprinkler heads are open and the pipe is not pressurized with air. Deluge systems are connected to a water supply through a deluge valve that is opened by the operation of a smoke or heat detection system. The detection system is installed in the same area as the sprinklers.

When the detection system is activated water discharges through all of the sprinkler heads in the system. Deluge systems are used in places that are considered high hazard areas such as power plants, aircraft hangars and chemical storage or processing facilities. Deluge systems are needed where high velocity suppression is necessary to prevent fire spread.

FireWater Services, Inc.'s technicians are thoroughly familiar with how to install and inspect deluge sprinkler systems in accordance to NFPA 25.

Wet based fire sprinkler system inspections are required on a monthly, quarterly, annually, and five-year basis.  Click the link below to download the NFPA regulations for the inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based fire sprinkler systems.
