How can fire pumps be tested in compliance with NFPA standards?


 Fire pumps can be tested in compliance with NFPA standards by performing the following tests:
  • Weekly Inspections: Conduct visual inspections to check for leaks, unusual noises, and proper operation.
  • Monthly Testing: Run the pump under no-flow conditions (churn test) to ensure it starts and runs correctly.
  • Annual Performance Test: Perform a flow test to measure the pump’s flow rate and pressure at various points (100%, 150% of rated capacity) to verify it meets design specifications.
  • Controller Tests: Check the fire pump controller for correct operation, including automatic start and stop functions.
