Hello sir

I want to ask a question

I have fire fighting system in a building the system is hose reel cabinets only there is no sprinklers.

I want to use ul/fm pump for the system contains primary and secondary pump. But the designer want me to use ul/fm main pump, secondary pump and jockey pump.

Is there any statement in NFPA that says that I should use three pumps for hose reel system only. Please provide me with the paragraph related to using jockey pump.

The designer says that the pump will not be ul/fm unless it has jockey pump and also if there is no jockey pump then the main pump will be used a lot and may be damaged.
