Components of a Sprinkler System

Updated: Jan 10, 2019

  • Underground brings water from the city mains to your building.

  • Water is then sent through a backflow.

  • All systems usually require an FDC or Fire Department Connection to increase the water pressure during a fire.

  • Enters either the fire pump where it is pumped to a certain pressure, or is released into the riser.

  • Risers “rise” vertically through the floors to feed the branch lines.

  • Branch Lines then extend off the risers and mains horizontally to bring water to all the sprinkler heads.
