What are the considerations for fire pump installations in seismic zones?


 In seismic zones, considerations include:
  • Seismic Bracing: Ensure the pump and associated piping are securely braced to withstand seismic forces.
  • Flexible Connections: Use flexible couplings and connections to accommodate movement and prevent damage during an earthquake.
  • Location: Install the pump in a location less likely to be impacted by structural damage, away from potential falling debris.
  • Compliance with Codes: Follow local seismic codes and standards for installation and anchoring of fire protection equipment.
