What is the difference between a jockey pump and a fire pump?


The jockey pump is a small pump connected to a fire sprinkler system to maintain pressure in the sprinkler pipes. This is to insure that if a fire- sprinkler is actuated, there will be a pressure drop, which will be tasted by the fire pumps automatic regulator, which will beget the fire pump to start.

A jockey pump is sized for a inflow lower than the inflow to one sprinkler in order to insure a system pressure drop. The function of jockey pumps is an important part of the fire pumps control system. Jockey pumps are generally smallmulti-stage centrifugal pumps, and don't have to be listed or certified for fire system operation. The control outfit for jockey pumps may still carry blessings.
