Fire Pump Performance Test
Performance Test (NFPA25)
Contractors and field technicians face significant testing challenges when dealing with complex fire pump systems. However, many individuals assigned to test these systems lack the required expertise. This can lead to a failure to detect critical issues during inspections of damaged fire pumps or unnecessary corrective actions. Nonetheless, competent technicians can acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to perform these tests adequately. This article aims to underscore key factors critical to the proper execution of annual fire pump performance tests. It is designed to complement Chapter 8 of the 2020 edition of the NFPA Standard 25.
