Rainier View Plumbing & Rooter is licensed for 13-D residential fire sprinkler systems.
Installing fire sprinklers in residential homes is a crucial safety measure designed to assist in protecting lives and property in the event of a fire.
Our fire sprinkler systems come in various types including multi-purpose systems, and stand-alone systems. The choice depends on factors such as climate, building structure, and specific fire protection needs.
Installation typically involves fitting pipes throughout the home, strategically placing sprinkler heads. The pipes are usually hidden within walls and ceilings, maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the residence. A reliable water supply source, often the main water line, is connected to the sprinkler system. This ensures an immediate and continuous water source in the event of a fire.
Each sprinkler head is designed to activate individually. They are triggered by heat, and not all sprinklers activate simultaneously. This targeted response minimizes water damage and ensures efficient firefighting.
After installation, the system undergoes thorough testing to ensure proper functionality. Regular maintenance is essential to keep the system in working order. This includes checking for leaks, inspecting valves, and testing alarms. Give us a call if you're ready for thorough maintenance on your fire sprinkler system.
The installation must comply with local building codes and standards related to fire safety. Compliance ensures that the system meets regulatory requirements and functions effectively. Our fire sprinkler team strives to be the best, and makes sure systems are installed and working properly.
