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

 

Patrick BC
