4.3.3 Annual Tests
188.8.131.52* An Annual test of each pump assembly shall be conducted under minimum, rated and peak flows of the fire pump by controlling the quantity of water discharged through approved test devices. This test shall be conducted as described in 5-3.3.1(a), (b), or (c).
Exception*: If available suction supplies do not allow flowing of 150 percent of the rated pump capacity, the fire pump shall be operated at maximum allowable discharge. This reduced capacity shall not constitute a noncompliant test.
