Has anyone else run across Alarm Contractors failing sprinkler waterflow alarms (paddle switches) because they activate almost immediately and cant be adjusted with a delay? They are recommending the paddle switches be replaced even though the ESFR systems are supplied by a booster fire pump well arranged with jockey pump & proper start/stop settings; and have no history of false alarms. Concern is their desire to escalate to the Fire Marshal when owner questioned the need.
