(Footnote *)This standard deals with the selection and installation of pumps supplying water for private fire protection. Items considered include water supplies; suction, discharge, and auxiliary equipment; power supplies; electric drive and control; internal combustion engine drive and control; steam turbine drive and control; and acceptance tests and operation. This standard does not cover system water supply capacity and pressure requirements (see A-2-1.1), nor does it cover requirements for periodic inspection, testing, and maintenance of fire pump systems. This standard does not cover the requirements for installation wiring of fire pump units.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to provide a reasonable degree of protection for life and property from fire through installation requirements for stationary pumps for fire protection based upon sound engineering principles, test data, and field experience. This standard includes single-stage and multistage pumps of horizontal or vertical shaft design. Requirements are established for the design and installation of these pumps, pump drivers, and associated equipment. The standard endeavors to continue the excellent record that has been established by stationary pump installations and to meet the needs of changing technology. Nothing in this standard is intended to restrict new technologies or alternate arrangements provided the level of safety prescribed by the standard is not lowered.

Existing Installations. Where existing pump installations meet the provisions of the standard in effect at the time of purchase, they shall be permitted to remain in use provided they do not constitute a distinct hazard to life or adjoining property.

(Footnote *)NOTICE: An asterick (*) following the number or letter designating a paragraph indicates that explanatory material on the paragraph can be found in Appendix A.

A reference in parentheses () at the end of a section or paragraph indicates that the material has been extracted from another NFPA document. The bold number in parentheses indicates the document number and is followed by the section number where the extracted material can be found in that document. The complete title and current edition of an extracted document can be found in the chapter on referenced publications.

Information on referenced publications can be found in Chapter 12 and Appendix C.
