With fall now into its full pageantry of colors, Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away and football season into a fevered pitch, it can only indicate that sustained freezing temperatures are probably not too far away. Last year was an unprecedented year for the South with the brutal winter we all sustained. While we hope it isn’t another historic winter here in the deep South, I’m sure Old Man Winter has a few surprises for us. With that, like my grandfather use to say, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!!”
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), all commercial fire sprinkler systems should be inspected and winterized annually.
Having your fire sprinkler system winterized is vital to preventing accidental water damage that may occur when water freezes and damages pipes, resulting in unexpected and costly leaks. For more information on the requirements to keep fire sprinkler systems from freezing, refer to the codes found in NFPA 13 and NFPA 25.
