Living With Sprinklers is Easy

  • Fire sprinklers require almost no maintenance and only work when you need them.
  • Do a simple flow test about twice a year or have your sprinkler contractor do it for you.
  • Occasionally do a visual inspection of the controls and sprinklers.
  • Use a padlock to keep the water valve in the ON position.
  • Teach your children fire sprinklers are not toys and should not be played with.
  • NEVER hang anything on the sprinklers, even temporarily.
  • Do not paint the sprinklers. And if you hire painters, make sure they know not to paint them.
  • Don’t block the sprinklers with furniture or fabrics. If the spray is blocked the sprinkler cannot put out a fire.
  • Most important, DON’T WORRY. Sprinklers are not complicated.

Today, home fires burn quickly and faster. Fire sprinklers provide time for you, your family, and friends to escape.
