Hi,

 

For a combined Sprinkler/Stand pipe System- Completely  Sprinklered , and fire hose connected to  wet sprinkler riserin accordance with 8.17.5.2 which am verifying the system Fire Pump Size .

 

  1.  Shall i consider the Flow Demand of the Hose Station 1-1/2" (40mm) 50-100gpm +the Hose Connection 2-1/2" (65mm) 250gpm while running the calculation on the software.
  2. Shall I consider in my calculations, Maintaining the Pressure Demand at the most remote Fire Hose Connection 2-1/2" (65mm) which is 100Psi and at the Hose Station -1/2" (40mm) which is 65psi ? or just maintain the minimum residual pressure on the sprinklers ?

Appreciating your kind support .
