Fire Pump Repair FAQs
Fire pumps are essential protection for your property. Here are some common questions about our fire pump repair services and how you can keep yours in good, working order.
What does a fire pump do?
A fire pump increases the pressure from the water source to the fire sprinkler system so it will send an appropriate amount of water quickly when a fire occurs. This critical component is necessary to make the fire sprinkler system work as it was designed to work, but it is only necessary for buildings where the fire sprinkler system requirements are higher than the water supply’s capabilities.
How can I avoid fire pump repairs?
Maintaining a fire pump can help building managers avoid costly repairs. In addition to keeping it lubricated, the system should be run on a weekly or monthly basis. This helps ensure it is operating properly. In addition, the drain lines need to be checked regularly to see if they are draining, and the area near the fire pump needs to be kept clear of rust and debris. Many of these tests can be done as part of your regular fire pump inspection service.
Why is the fire pump bearing getting too hot?
The bearing cap on a fire pump should not operate at more than 200 degrees Fahrenheit and ideally should operate around 175. if it is operating higher than this, it may be due to poor lubrication of the system. Bearing failure can also lead to the system overheating. This is a sign that the fire pump needs to be repaired.
