As you can see below, fire sprinkler corrosion can cause major damage to the internal condition and functioning of your system. Imagine that the sprinkler head that needs to go off to put out a fire is attached to the bottom this piece of pipe. You can see that there is no possible way water could get through this amount of build up. This is exactly why Internal Inspections should be done at every 5-year intervals.

Tips to Mitigate Corrosion

  • Have regular inspections performed on your fire sprinkler system
  • Identify areas that are at a higher risk of corrosion (high moisture areas, temperature fluctuations, etc.)
  • Add a Nitrogen Generation System to your Dry or Pre-Action System
  • Drain low point / drum drip drains on Dry and Pre-Action Systems regularly to reduce internal corrosion
