Fire Pumps

A fire pump is a part of a fire sprinkler system's water supply and can be powered by electric, diesel or steam.

The pump intake is either connected to the public underground water supply piping, or a static water source. The pump provides water flow at a higher pressure to the sprinkler system risersand hose standpipes.

Fire pumps may be powered either by an electric motor or a diesel engine, or, occasionally a steam turbine.
