I've spent the morning looking for the the code I need, but haven't found it.  Can anyone point me to a section that clearly explains that dry systems shall not be kept charged (thereby making it a wet system) and any sections that might address other agencies tying into the standpipes for cleaning actions?

With a meter main disconnect combo. Using the main lugs from the disconnect (not one of the additional breakers in the M M combo) to run cable to a interior panel board. Would this designate my Interior panel board as a sub panel? I would think not because the disconnect is not a breaker so this would be the same as a Installation direct from the… (Show more)
