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.
The Fire Pump installed in your premise must be maintained in proper working order and records of its maintenance must be kept on-site. Any malfunction of a fire pump must be immediately rectified by a qualified representative.
