 Houston Private Fire Service Main

 A private fire service main is the connection of a water supply from the City of Houston, well system or water tank to the fire hydrants, fire sprinklers or standpipe fire sprinkler system of a building, structure or facility. In many cases private fire service mains supply all water to installed fire protection systems.

 Fire service mains are installed to ensure a pressurized flow of water will reach all fire protection equipment, hydrants, sprinklers, suppression systems, standpipes, fire hose connections and FDC outlets. Backflow preventers stop any possible water in the fire protection system from flowing back into the potable water supply.

Houston Private Fire Service Main Tests & Inspections

Tests and inspections should be completed on all installed private fire service mains according to Federal, State, OSHA, Insurance Companies, NFPA standards and codes and the City of Houston safety, building and fire codes.
