Sacramento Fire Pump

Sacramento Fire Pump

The fire pump pulls water from the community or is connected to its own water supply source such as a lake, reservoir, or water tank. Fire pumps are generally operated with electric diesel or steam. The pumps main purpose is to provide the correct water pressure and supply needed for the fire protection system to operate and function properly. The fire pump provides water to the fire protection system standpipes and the fire sprinkler risers.

The NFPA 20 states, “1.1* Scope. 1.1.1 This standard deals with the selection and installation of pumps supplying liquid for private fire protection. 1.1.2 The scope of this document shall include liquid supplies; suction, discharge, and auxiliary equipment; power supplies, including power supply arrangements; electric drive and control; diesel engine drive and control; steam turbine drive and control; and acceptance tests and operation. 1.1.3 This standard does not cover system liquid supply capacity and pressure requirements, nor does it cover requirements for periodic inspection, testing, and maintenance of fire pump systems. 1.1.4 This standard does not cover the requirements for installation wiring of fire pump units.”
