Annual Standpipe Inspection

Elevate Your Fire Safety Standards

Alltron Systems' Standpipe Inspections Ensure Readiness When It Counts

An annual standpipe inspection is a thorough examination of a building's standpipe system to ensure it is functioning correctly and meets safety standards. Standpipe systems are an integral part of a building's fire protection system, providing a means to supply water to hose connections at various locations throughout the building, primarily for use by the fire department during a fire emergency.

The standards for these inspections are typically set by organizations such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in the United States, particularly NFPA 25,"Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems."

Here's what an annual standpipe inspection generally entails:

visual inspection

Visual Inspection

Checking the entire standpipe system for signs of physical
damage, leaks, or corrosion. This includes all pipes, fittings, braces, and

hose storage devices and cabinets

valves inspection

Valves Inspection

Inspecting all valves (control valves, check valves, gate
valves, etc.) to ensure they are accessible, properly identified, and fully operational. This also includes testing valve tamper switches, if present.

pressure gauges inspection

Pressure Gauges

Inspecting pressure gauges for accuracy and clear readability. Gauges are typically replaced every five years or as needed.

hose connections
