NFPA 25: Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems, 2008 Edition
|Item # 2508|
Significant revisions in the 2008 NFPA 25 boost the service life and effectiveness of all types of water-based systems!
Water-based fire protection systems are proven lifesavers, but they only work if they're maintained properly. Maximize system integrity and reliability with NFPA 25: Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. Up-to-date with the 2007 NFPA 13, the 2008 NFPA 25 offers the most advanced rules for the care of fire sprinkler systems, standpipe and hose systems, fire pumps, fire service piping and appurtenances, water storage tanks, fixed water spray, foam-water, and valves. Provisions also address impairment handling and reporting.
Guidelines for a performance-based testing option offer an alternate, flexible means of compliance.
While the 2002 Standard edition included performance-based testing on a limited basis in the "equivalency" option, the 2008 NFPA 25 includes practical guidance on how to implement and monitor the process, subject to AHJ approval. You'll find advice on what variables to take into account when adjusting frequencies...which factors to consider in the transition to a performance-based test program...and how to establish a failure rate, complete with suggested calculation methods and examples.
Prevent system failures with new industry best practices. Important changes include:
- New component replacement testing tables for each type of water-based system
- Specific criteria quantify when to do main drain tests and direct the owner on how to find and fix the problem.
- First-time coverage of dry pipe system testing
- New chapter on water mist systems maintenance
- New impairment procedures requirement
Don't let improper maintenance undermine operational readiness. Order the 2008 NFPA 25 today and use the latest facts to keep water-based systems ready for action. (Softbound, 97 pp., 2008)
