NFPA 13 also requires building owners to keep anywhere from 6 to 24 spare sprinkler heads on-site, as well as a supply of corresponding sprinkler head wrenches. Adhering to this requirement ensures that all necessary components are ready and available for the immediate removal and replacement of faulty or activated sprinkler heads.
