Q: There is paint on one of my sprinkler heads. Does it need to be replaced?

A: Yes. The standard requires that a sprinkler head with paint on it has to be replaced. This applies to all sprinkler head parts, including cover plates (also known as escutcheon plates.) Not only does paint on a sprinkler void its warranty, it also acts as a protective barrier that reduces effectiveness, since it may not detect the change in temperature required for activation.

If you have a question about a sprinkler head that appears to be painted, give us a call. (240) 366-8163

Not a Good Look ❌
Our inspectors came upon this very badly corroded and clogged fire protection piping, which can occur due to age and lack of maintenance. This piece of pipe is 3’ long and so packed with sediment that no light can even pass through. In the event of a fire, the sprinklers near this area would not be able to expel water. When one portion of a sprinkler system is in this condition, the chances are high that that most or even all of the piping is in this poor condition.

What To Do ✔️
Premier Fire Protection Services strongly recommends an obstruction investigation be performed ASAP. If the breakdown of piping is severe and widespread, an entire new system may be required. Homeowners and business owners should know that this is preventable. Save money and stay safe by having your fire sprinkler equipment regularly examined and maintained.

⁣#FireFactFridays Any sprinkler head that has corrosion on it that may interfere with performance needs to be replaced, according to NFPA 25. ⁣But how do you determine what does and does not interfere with performance? That can be a difficult question to answer. ⁣

It is always smarter to err on the side of caution–not only for you, but for your family, friends, and coworkers. Out of date or poorly functioning fire sprinklers means taking a gamble, risking injury or possibly even death. If a fire occurs, you don't want to regret not having taken the proper steps.

When you see a corroded sprinkler head, contact a licensed fire protection company for an inspection and replacement. ⁣

How do you know when a fire extinguisher has expired? 🧯 Most fire extinguishers have a 10-20 year life expectancy, but only with proper maintenance. Here’s how to keep your extinguishers in working order so they’re ready when you need them:

Rechargeable Fire Extinguishers
- A rechargeable extinguisher should be inspected monthly by making sure its mounted properly, the gauge is green and the pin indicator pops back up if pushed, hose is attached, use instructions are facing forward, the pin securing the handle is in place, and there’s no damage to the unit. Depending on the brand, rechargeable fire extinguishers may require internal examinations, as well as testing, performed every 6 to 12 years. Check with your fire protection to learn more.

Disposable Fire Extinguishers
- Disposable fire extinguishers should be replaced every 12 years. You can find the expiration date stamped on the cylinder body, or it might be under the plastic ring around the neck of the extinguisher.
