If you own a commercial building and have an underground service main, it’s essential that you routinely have a professional inspect and flush it out. There are a wide range of items that could end up in pipes underground, including rocks, wood, sticks and other debris. In addition, the NFPA requires underground pipes that provide water for fire suppression systems to be routinely flushed out.
Failure to flush out your underground fire service main could lead to tragic consequences, as a strong enough blockages could cause your fire suppression system to not work optimally when you need it the most. The last thing you want is a failed system, which could allow a fire to move and expand.
