Five Year Internal Inspections
Sprinkler systems are a lot like cars ‒ neglect and lack of proper maintenance can lead to costly repairs. Over time, foreign material can build up in a sprinkler system, causing corrosion of the pipes. This buildup can severely affect the functionality of the systems, restricting the flow of water and sometimes even causing the system to become completely inoperable.
Having an internal investigation performed to your sprinkler system every five years is a great way to ensure your system is operable and avoid costly repairs. In fact, the NFPA indicates that an internal investigation should be performed every five years or when conditions indicate the need for the test.
Reputable fire protection companies such as Cintas can perform this test should your sprinkler system need one.
