Fire sprinkler systems are a great way to protect a facility and its occupants from a fire. However, fire sprinklers are useless if they are not taken care of. The best way to take care of a fire sprinkler system is to have it inspected and tested on a regular basis.
Benefits of Sprinkler Inspections
Fire sprinkler inspections can provide many advantages to your facility in the long run. Some benefits of inspections include:
- Peace of mind that your facility is protected
- Compliance with NFPA and local code and avoiding fines due to noncompliance
- Prevent damage to the building and the sprinkler system due to deficiencies
- Save money on repair costs to sprinkler system and damage to building caused by deficiencies
- Keep people safe

How Often Should Sprinklers be Inspected?
Fire sprinkler systems should be inspected and tested on a regular schedule. When you work with a fire protection provider, you can set up regularly scheduled inspections that keep your systems functional and code compliant. Inspections and tests of fire sprinklers should be performed:
- Every 3 years
- Every 5 years
Sprinklers are tested and inspected in accordance with NFPA 25. NFPA 25 sets the standard for testing and inspection frequencies of fire sprinkler systems.
