Need fire sprinkler testing, inspections, or installations? Taylor Group provides residential and commercial sprinkler services throughout Manhattan. Call (855) 999-LEAK to schedule an appointment.
Property owners with fire sprinklers installed need to make sure their systems are regularly inspected, tested, and maintained. Emergencies can happen when you least expect it, so it’s imperative that your fire sprinklers are prepared to work when needed.
What’s alarming is that many buildings in New York City don’t have fire sprinklers at all. If your apartment was built before 1999, chances are it doesn’t have any kind of sprinkler system in place.
Changes in fire sprinkler regulations are gradually developing, though. A retroactive city law now requires commercial establishments over 100 feet tall to have sprinklers fitted in.

How Often Should Your Fire Sprinkler Be Tested and Inspected?
Fire sprinkler inspection and testing are two different aspects of compliance.
During inspection, our licensed team will look over your system to ensure there are no glaring safety issues.
For wet-pipe fire sprinkler systems, pressure gauges should be inspected monthly. Gauges for other types of sprinklers (dry, deluge, pre-action) should ideally be inspected once a week.
Quarterly inspections include checking the waterflow switch, control valves, and supervisory signal equipment. We will also make sure the hydraulic nameplates are properly secured and contain the required information.
Annual inspections will cover the pipe hangers and seismic bracing.
Testing requires a more detailed examination of your system.
Quarterly testing targets the sprinkler’s mechanical devices.
Annual testing will cover all aspects of the system, including water flow, alarms, antifreeze concentration, and more. The annual test is like a “health physical” for your fire sprinkler.
Five-year tests target the pipe system. We will check the pipe interiors for blockages and perform any necessary repairs or replacements.
