Fire Pump Testing for Commercial Businesses

The National Fire Protection Association, or NFPA, dictates that fire pump testing is required on a monthly and annual basis. This will ensure the code compliance of commercial businesses. As a business owner, it is your responsibility to guarantee that your fire protection system is in working condition. Part of your fire protection system is your fire pump, which needs to be tested to keep up with the NFPA’s regulations. At Chesapeake Protection Services, our long list of protection services include fire pump testing for commercial businesses. Our skilled team of NICET certified technicians will physically test, run, and document every fire protection component at your commercial business for your peace of mind.

What is a Fire Pump? 

If you aren’t familiar with a fire pump, it is a critical component of your fire sprinkler system. The fire pump is part of your fire sprinkler system’s water supply and helps increase the flow and pressure of water released from sprinklers. Having a working fire pump is critical to ensure the safety of all building occupants within your commercial business. At Chesapeake Protection Services, you can trust that our knowledgeable team of technicians can perform monthly churn tests and a yearly flow test to maintain code compliance of your commercial building. 

Why Do I Need Fire Pump Testing? 

Fire pump testing on a monthly and yearly basis is mandated per the NFPA’s regulations for commercial building compliance. It’s important to test your fire pump to ensure that the pump will operate in the event of a fire. Since a fire pump provides pressurized water to the fire sprinkler system, having a malfunctioning fire pump could have deadly consequences for all building occupants in the event of a fire. In addition to these deadly consequences, a malfunctioning fire pump could also cause irreparable damage to property if a fire were to occur.
