"One sprinkler head goes off, they all go off. Sprinklers will flood your home."
"Sprinkler systems add unnecessary costs that deter would-be homeowners from making a sale."
Apparently, educational efforts are helping the public distinguish fact from these popular sprinkler myths. Case in point: a new survey released this week by the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition confirms that nearly 75 percent of U.S. homeowners are more likely to buy a sprinklered home versus one without. Moreover, nearly 80 percent of survey participants said sprinklers provide the ultimate protection for residents.
