  • According to the standard series EVS-EN 671

  •  § 16. Hose system inspection

  • The owner reviews the condition of the hose system on a quarterly basis.

  • The inspection shall include steps to ensure that the hose system is ready for use, visible, has an instruction manual, is accessible and free from visible defects, corrosion and leaks.

  • The efficiency of the hose system and its water supply capacity shall be checked if the results of the inspection so require, but at least once a year.

  • The person inspecting and maintaining the hose system shall keep records of inspection and maintenance operations for at least five years after the inspection and maintenance.


MAINTENANCE OF SPRINKLER SYSTEMS

  • According to EVS-EN 12845

  • The sprinkler system is one of the most common automatic fire extinguishing systems in the world. Automatic means that the system must activate without human intervention, which is why system maintenance and operation is a big responsibility.

  • The sprinkler system consists of an extinguishing water supply, a booster set, sprinkler system piping and sprinkler heads. The purpose of an activated system is to locate and extinguish fire and to transmit an alarm.

  • For the sprinkler system to activate, all switches and actuators must be in working order, maintained and inspected, and signals must be allowed to move within the prescribed time to open the shut-off valves, actuate booster pumps, transmit alarms and the water to reach the fire zone. In addition to sensors, switches, valves, manometers, the automatic activation of the pumps must be tested monthly and the efficiency of the booster pumps must be tested at least once a year, as the capacity of the pumps may decrease over time.

  • During the maintenance of the sprinkler system, the system as a whole shall be analysed and inspected, tests shall be carried out and, if necessary, repairs shall be carried out on the system or parts thereof to ensure that the system activates automatically.
