Water leaks can happen in surprising and hidden places in the home, and cause thousands of dollars in damage before they're fixed. QRFS details the causes, costs, and insurance implications of home water leaks, plus looks at a simple solution to automatically detect leaks and stop them: The Water Hero.
Home fire sprinklers are simple and easy to maintain, and they can last for decades with minimal care. But the specific maintenance requirements depend on the type of system and the components that are installed. QRFS takes a look at how to maintain different home fire sprinkler systems, including the essential "don'ts" that ensure sprinklers will work in an emergency.
In the last installment of our series covering the installation of home fire sprinklers, we complete our look at major sprinkler system components, examining pipe in home fire sprinklers as well as valves and alarms.
In Part 2 of our Residential Fire Sprinkler Installation series, we cover some of the major components of home fire sprinkler systems: The types of fire sprinkler heads and their distribution; how the water supply is determined and applies to standalone or multipurpose systems; and the use of pumps, tanks, and other possible items that can be used in a system.
