Fire sprinkler system maintenance is often neglected. Without ongoing maintenance of equipment, however, the cost of a repair to a fire sprinkler system can grow exponentially over time. Regular preventative maintenance is the best way to avoid system downtime and costly emergency service. Regular maintenance helps identify future problems, allowing property owners and managers to accurately predict and budget fire sprinkler repair cost far in advance.

Example: A small leak on a dry system seems minor to the building owner. But our technician knows this will cause the air compressor to run more than once a day and introduce additional warm moist air into the system. This in turn will accelerate the corrosion factor by the quantity of times the compressor runs.
Result: A system that should last 50 years could have been reduced to only 10 due to a minor leak in the system!!! On the technician’s advice, a minor repair is done now, saving the building owner the future cost of an early system replacement.
