Dear Reader,


We are designing a combined system consisting of Private External Hydrants (1,250 GPM max flow) and Potable Water supply (2,000 GPM) connected through one system as allowed in NFPA 24.


1- The Fire pumps arrangement shall be in a separate room?

2- We shall Have 1 Electrical + 1 Diesel or 1 Electrical with backup power?


I am not able to find in NFPA 20 and 24 how to properly design this set serving potable water and fire hydrants externally.


Please advise.


Thank You
