hydrant fire protection system?
he fire hydrants are being supplied by a pump? How long must the pump be
able to supply water to the hydrants.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
The amount of water and supply duration will depend on the type of hazards inside the facility. A fire risk assessment should be made to determine fire protection water demand and minimum supply availability. You should hire a fire protections specialist or a fire engineer to perform a survey of the facility and a fire risk assessment.
