What are the key differences between fire pump testing for acceptance and maintenance purposes?


  • Acceptance Testing:
    • Initial Test: Conducted when the pump is first installed to verify it meets design specifications.
    • Comprehensive: Includes flow tests, pressure tests, and system integration checks.
  • Maintenance Testing:
    • Regular Basis: Conducted periodically to ensure the pump continues to meet performance standards.
    • Focused: Often involves specific tests like the churn test and flow tests at rated conditions.
