Fire Pump Systems
When a fire strikes, make sure you have the water pressure to fight back. Fire pumps are responsible for feeding the building’s sprinkler and standpipe systems with a continuous supply of water in the event of a sprinkler discharge. This supply of water has to be adequate in volume relative to the size of the building, and the size of the sprinkler piping. Fire pumps are required in buildings where the local municipal water is unable to provide sufficient water pressure for the building’s sprinkler system. This typically occurs in cases where maximum water pressure is required at a far distance away from the pump, such as in the case of a warehouse, factory or high-rise building. Fire pumps are powered by a diesel engine or an electric motor. In very rare circumstances, they are also powered by steam.

Fire Pumps are the heart of your fire protection system. Without a suitable and properly functioning fire pump, your building’s sprinkler system may not have an adequate supply of water required to fight a fire. Fire pumps in Ontario are designed and installed in accordance with NFPA 20 (Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps), and tested as per the Ontario Fire Code in accordance with methodologies outlined in NFPA 25 (standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems).
Testing, Inspection & Maintenance
The Ontario and National Fire Codes state that the requirements for fire pump testing that are described in NFPA 25 are deemed as satisfactory. NFPA 25 is the Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems.
Our Fire Pump Testing, Inspection & Maintenance page describes the scope of work of each of the annual and monthly/weekly fire pump tests and inspections.
