Without a properly working fire pump, sprinkler system cannot maintain the right air pressure which could cause little to no water flow in the event of a fire.
We sell, install and repair fire pumps of all sizes. We will make sure you have, and will continue to have, a functioning fire pump, so a lack of a water supply will never stop your sprinklers from working.
