Fire Sprinkler Wrench Helpful Tips:
Tip 1: It is recommended that a qualified professional replace fire sprinklers or in any other way modify a fire sprinkler system.
Tip 2: A fire sprinkler's size describes the inner orifice diameter - either half (1/2 in.) or three-quarter (3/4 in.) inch. The outer diameter of a (1/2 in.) sprinkler's threads measures close to three-quarter inch. The other diameter of a (3/4 in.) sprinkler's threads measures close to one inch. Most offices, small retail locations, etc. have (1/2 in.) sprinklers. This applies to ordering wrenches - make sure to get the wrench that fits your size sprinkler.
Tip 3: Spare fire sprinkler heads and a wrench should be accessible at all times in a facility with a commercial fire sprinkler system installed. Often state regulations apply, too. Check with your local fire department.
Tip 4: Fire sprinkler systems should be visually inspected often and professionally inspected annually.
