A backflow preventer is installed to prevent the backflow of chemicals or contaminants into the public water main system. This allows emergency vehicles equipment and personnel the ability to connect their fire hoses without worrying about the backflow of water entering into the municipal water supply.
Backflow preventers used for fire protection systems should be installed by licensed fire protection companies familiar with NFPA standards and codes, state and city, fire and health codes and/or municipal jurisdictional building codes.
Keeping your fire protection fully serviced and maintained makes good sense. When your backflow preventer is in need of repair contact Critical System Solutions to exam the problems, fix what is broken and repair the backflow preventer or any other issues you may be having with your fire protection system.
Backflow preventers require annual tests and inspections that must be completed by a licensed fire protection company in accordance with NFPA 25 and AWWA.
When properly installed and maintained an automated fire sprinkler system provides 24-hour fire protection. The system activates and releases a water spray in the area of the fire, suppressing the fire, until additional help arrives. Regular inspection provides the peace of mind that comes from knowing your sprinkler system is always ready and in top working order. Our comprehensive inspection program ensures your system will perform when needed most. We confirm system readiness, inspect components and provide a detailed report recommending any necessary corrective action. Well maintained sprinkler systems are highly reliable and protect people as well as property.
Fire Hydrant Testing and Installation
It really doesn’t take much to keep a hydrant operating in peak condition, however, regular maintenance is required. NFPA 25 “Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems” is the standard that should be used for the periodic maintenance and testing of hydrants.
Regular hydrant testing is a significant component of a district's water supply program. Water systems are constantly being impacted by improvements, deterioration, changes in usage, and even water district maintenance activities, which may affect zone valve settings. As a result, it is important to annually test all fire hydrants to determine what their capabilities would be in an emergency.
The fire pump, as minor as may seem, plays an integral role within the fire protection system for many buildings, yet often taken for granted and almost always located out of sight. This critical link in the chain of fire protection, once found only in high rise buildings or extremely large manufacturing complexes, plays an integral role to increasing the water supply pressure within the fire protection system. Because the fire pump is generally located in the most out of the way location, they are very often overlooked and disregarded. Because of this very reason, testing and maintenance of your fire pump assembly is crucial.
Fire sprinkler piping over time can start to break down or wear out leading to the accumulation of foreign material or corrosion. This process can be accelerated in some conditions. An internal piping inspection can identify microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), rust and slime. These obstructions within the system piping, valves or other devices that make up the sprinkler system can greatly compromise the integrity of the system itself. In some cases making the system inoperable and can potentially put lives and/ or property in danger in the event of a fire condition.
The new CSS Fire Sprinkler Underground Division is prepared to handle all of your installation and maintenance needs for Fire Hydrants, Fire Service Mains and Back Flow Preventers.
Fire Hydrants are a pivotal part of the fire sprinkler system. They are used in the response of a fire to supply water to the Fire Department and to supplement an activated sprinkler system.
A properly installed and maintained fire service main is the first line of defense in the event of a fire. The fire service main supplies water to the fire sprinkler system.
Back Flow Preventers are installed on every fire sprinkler system. The proper installation, testing and maintenance of these devices ensure that no contamination enters into the public water supply.
Trained technicians on staff perform vital services and repairs to help maintain your sprinkler systems optimal performance.
