There are many important aspects of your commercial business, and one such area that needs to be cared for is your fire sprinkler system. While fire emergencies aren’t incredibly common, you still need to be prepared for them, and a damaged fire sprinkler system puts your business at serious risk if a fire were to arise. If your sprinklers are damaged, you may be wondering whether it’s better to try repairing them, or if you need to commit to replacing your entire sprinkler system. Today, we’re going to help you determine whether a repair or replacement is better for your fire sprinkler system.
What Age is Your Fire Sprinkler System?
Fire sprinkler systems will typically last you around two decades. The sprinkler heads might have to get replaced sooner than that, however. With all of this considered, if your sprinkler system has just about reached this age, it’s likely that you will need an entirely new system installed in your building.
How is Your Service History?
How frequently have your fire sprinklers been repaired in the past few years? What budget do you have to care for your sprinklers? It’s important to think about how expensive it is to repair your sprinkler system because there’s a chance that replacing it could be a more economically sound solution. If repairing your current fire sprinkler system proves to be more expensive than getting a new one, you’re better off just replacing your current system.
What Kind of Fire Sprinkler System Do You Have?
There are both dry and wet fire sprinkler systems, and depending on which type of system your building has, you’ll be able to tell how severe any damage may be. There are many instances in which only a certain portion of your system requires replacing. In cases like this, it’s best to replace those specific parts rather than investing in an entirely new fire sprinkler system.
