Portland 3A fire sprinkler testing and inspection is required by the city every year. Portland 3C fire sprinkler testing and inspection is required by the city every 5 years and is a more in-depth process that also includes cleaning. Both of these tests are required by the city for residential, commercial, and industrial properties.
Portland 3C fire sprinkler testing and inspection refers to the form that is filled out during the visit to ensure that the testing and inspection was carried out. The 3C form records the date, location and type of system that is being tested. The technician must record his name and badge number on the form so it is known that a licensed, trained professional conducted the testing.
The technician will record the water pressure at the time of the test. A grid system allows the technician to record observations using a range of satisfactory to unsatisfactory. The form is very specific about the things that are checked, such as water level in the recirculation tank. Pressure of gas in the gas cylinder tanks is noted. Valves are examined to ensure that they are in proper working order and that valves that should be open are open.
Water pressure gauges are checked and noted to be in good condition with pressure in the acceptable range.
In-depth testing is also done every five years. This testing checks pipes and sprinklers internally and throughout the entire system.
Lives are saved when fire protection systems are in place and work. Portland 3C fire sprinkler testing and inspection is required because these systems are the most effective form of fire protection.
