Insurance policies and lives depend on sprinkler systems working in an emergency. The fact is that a sprinkler system can fail. This is almost always due to human error. Poor sprinkler tank maintenance is often the cause of failures. This illustrates why every sprinkler tank should looked after by professionals.
More than half of sprinkler system failures happen when equipment is shut off. Experts say this is often during the construction phase of a building. But it can happen during routine inspections or maintenance work.
ROV Underwater Equipment
A qualified professional will know how to avoid such failures. Nationwide Water Solutions is the UK’s leading independent sprinkler tank specialist. It says ROV underwater camera equipment is vital for all sprinkler tank survey work.
“It protects the integrity of a sprinkler system during the inspection,” said a spokesman. “There is no need to drain the sprinkler tank or shut off any part of the system.”
Damaged Sprinkler System Components
Around 17 per cent of sprinkler system failures happen as a result of manual intervention. A further 7 per cent of sprinkler system failures are the result of damaged components.
Nationwide Water Solutions says routine testing by a professional will identify sprinkler tank problems. Recommendations will always follow any survey. They will include suggestions to replacement or repair damaged components where necessary.
High priority problems must be corrected as soon as possible.
