What are Jockey Pumps?
Fire sprinkler systems sometimes use small pumps called jockey pumps to maintain the sprinkler system’s pressure. These pumps pressure in the system to acceptable levels
Types of Facilities that Require Jockey Pumps
Though specific regulations and requirements vary, when it comes to sprinkler systems, they can be found in the following buildings (and jockey pumps can be a part of that system):
- Manufacturing Facilities
- Medical Facilities
- Multi-Family Residential Buildings
- Commercial Buildings
- Assisted Living Facilities
- Retail Facilities
- … and more!
Benefits of Installing Jockey Pumps
Without jockey pumps, some sprinkler systems would lose pressure.and the fire pump will start and run without cause. This can result in false fire department dispatch, and cause expensive damage to the fire pump.
As with so many pieces of firefighting equipment, jockey pumps used for fire sprinkler systems are strictly regulated by the NFPA.
