Fire Pumps: Sales, Installation, Testing & Repair in Columbia
A fire sprinkler pump is a critical element of your building’s fire suppression sprinkler system. When a sprinkler head is activated and the pressure in your fire sprinkler system drops below a certain threshold, the fire pump is your only means of providing adequate water flow required for your sprinkler system to function properly—but only if it’s running properly and been through the proper installation, testing, and maintenance procedures.
Guardian Fire Protection provides fire pump sales, installation, inspection, testing, and repair to companies located in and around Columbia, MD. Don’t put off your fire pump inspection until the week before the fire marshal is scheduled to visit your company—call Guardian Fire today!
Our fire professionals will help you select the right size fire pump for your needs and/or we’ll make sure that your unit passes all of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes.
