What are the key considerations for fire pump suction piping?


 The design and installation of fire pump suction piping are critical for optimal pump performance. Key considerations include:
  • Sufficient diameter: The suction piping should be adequately sized to minimize friction losses and ensure a steady flow of water.
  • Straight run: The suction piping should have a straight run into the pump to avoid turbulence and cavitation.
  • Proper support: The piping should be properly supported to prevent vibrations and mechanical stress on the pump.
  • Strainers: Installing strainers can help prevent debris from entering the pump and causing damage.
