As per NFPA 14 (7.10.1.1.2) if a standpipe is serving 3 hose reels at a particular floor then we must accommodate 750 gpm thru it. If I have a building that is spread over a large area but a pump that is limited to 500 gpm, does this mean I have to give separate stand pipes to every 2 hose reels? There are many hose reels installed but if I dedicate a standpipe to more than 3 hose reels then I must take 750 gpm thru that pipe and my pump is limited to 500. Class 3 systems under consideration here.
