Frequently Asked Question

A well designed sprinkler system can be the difference between saving or losing everything you own and have worked hard for.

Every house is different and requires its own needs. A standard 260sqm house may need as many as 20 sprinklers.

This is dependent on each individual requirement and what is and isn’t available, but generally speaking a good water supply ie; storage tank or dam. A good quality, reliable firefighting pump is also necessary, along with piping sized accordingly to deliver the best water supply to each sprinkler head. 

There are two main forms of automation to control your firefighting pump, and both require a phone signal. A variety of sensors such as heat and smoke detectors to trigger the system are also available. Depending on the type of pump, other necessary requirements might be needed ie; an electric start option for a petrol pump or independent power supply for an electric pump.

Option 1: Control through a smart phone app, providing information such as pump runtimes, battery and solar charge levels, faults and routine maintenance.

Option 2: Requires a simple text message or a phone call to start or stop the fire pump.
