Guarantee the operational reliability of your Sprinkler Systems using an evaluation by TÜV SÜD
The intended function of sprinkler systems may run the risk of impairment or even loss in consequence of waterside scaling or deposition and corrosion caused by improper water chemical conditions. Especially sprinkler head pipes may run the risk of blockage so that the required amount of water is not available in case of activation.
According an instruction of VdS (German Association of non-life Insurers) sprinkler systems have to be inspected by random use of video endoscope after 25 years of operation in case of wet systems or rather 12.5 years of operation in case of dry systems.
The testing of sprinkler systems aims at evaluating the operational and procedural requirements against the background of water- and corrosion chemistry aspects as well as evaluating the availability of the system to provide the required amount of water in case of activation.
