As per NFPA 25 Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems, in Chapter 8, the it states that if readings are above 95% of rated pump pressure, investigation shall be done. 

My question is, does the above clause is for the NEW installed pump or for maintaining an existing pump?

and if it is for maintenance perspective, what is the acceptable margin for a new installed pump.
