Fire Pump Inspections in Portland, Seattle, and San Jose Areas
Without an optimally working fire pump, many sprinkler systems lack adequate pressure and flow, which drastically reduces or completely eliminates the efficacy of the system. It’s imperative that your fire pump be inspected thoroughly according to NFPA and ANSI standards to ensure all components are working appropriately.
Performance Systems Integration will build a unique fire pump inspection program designed to audit your fire pump system to ensure compliance and dependability. This may include weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual fire pump inspections depending on the condition and age of your pump system, as well as other factors. All aspects of the fire pump system will be inspected, including the engine (electric or diesel), pumping mechanisms, piping, valves, and more, so your business can be confident in its safety at all times.

Weekly Fire Pump Testing in Portland, Bay Area, and Seattle
In addition to routine inspections, weekly testing is an integral part of fire pump maintenance. During testing, the pump will be operated and allowed to get up to proper operating temperatures. This is to ensure that all systems run properly during “normal” operating circumstances and to locate any complications that might arise due to overheating, engine failure, or any leaking in the fire pump system.
Testing is best performed by an experienced professional that can accurately gauge the performance of your fire pump — PSI is your ideal choice for dependable fire pump testing!

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Pump Inspection & Testing
When Should a Fire Pump Be Inspected?
NFPA 25 allows some systems to be tested once per month. However, we recommended that you run diesel-driven fire pumps for at least 30 minutes and electric motor-driven fire pumps for at least 10 minutes once every week. This helps ensure that pressure switches, transducers, etc., are functioning properly.
How Is a Fire Pump Tested?
Our inspection teams test a wide range of systems and readings. We test the system suction and discharge pressure, pump packing glands, discharge valves, gland nuts, and other components. We thoroughly inspect the system for noises, vibration, leaks, and other signs of damage.
Is Fire Pump Testing Critical?
Regular testing of your fire pump is absolutely vital. Testing helps ensure that the pump will deliver your fire suppression system’s flow and pressure demands in an emergency. This includes testing the fire pump alarm signals, pump operation, flow test, ventilating louvers, etc.
Can Anyone Perform a Fire Pump Inspection Test and Maintenance?
No, NFPA 25 requires fire pump inspectors and maintenance personnel to complete specialized training in order to perform the annual flow test. However, in-house personnel can perform weekly and monthly tests. Any maintenance or repairs on the system must be completed by a qualified professional.
What Annual Maintenance Do Fire Pumps Require?
Each year, the hydraulic systems, transmission, and motor must undergo thorough maintenance. Any other components and systems should undergo maintenance as components show signs of damage or failure.
