The majority of buildings that you enter on any given day contain a fire sprinkler system which helps stop fires and can save lives. These systems contain multiple components and to understand it, you first must start at the beginning. Many towns have a water reservoir also known as water towers which holds potable water. Part of this water is used for household needs such as drinking or taking a shower. The other half is for sprinkler systems in the event of a fire. In order for the water to reach a building, it travels underground in a series of pipes. Pipes in the building allow the water to travel to different areas and floors. When a sprinkler head is exposed to enough heat from a fire, water is released. A backflow regulator valve located where the fire sprinkler system separates from the main water line, prevents dirty water flowing back into the main city system and keeps it pressurized and sitting in the pipes at the ready. In order for the water to be released at a constant pressure, a fire pump is used. This is connected to the fire sprinkler system pipes where the water waits. A fire pump also helps the water to travel upwards against gravity to other floors. In a large building, there are two different kinds of fire pumps. The first being electric and the second being diesel.
