The existing sprinkler tank on site is approximately 30 years old and had previously been line by other.
FDS were employed firstly to carry out an internal tank inspection with the use of an ROV submersible camera. From this it was noted that the internal tank ties had broken and due to the age of the tank should be replaced.
The client took the opportunity to increase the tank capacity to allow for the change of good store in the warehouse.
FDS attended site on the Monday to isolated the fire pumps and drain down the tank. Our tank sub-contractors attended on the Tuesday to remove the old tank and clean the base up.
The new tank and line commenced the following Monday with the system back on line by Friday lunch time.
Both the client and insurers were happy as previous experience had meant that the sprinkler system was off line for 28days.
With FDs it was down for only 11days.
