Know Your Water Controls
Just what are all those pipes and controls used for?
In most cases, sprinklers are supplied by the water main, where water comes into a home. The fire sprinklers connects to the water main. In some cases the water flows through a backflow valve. A main water control valve is on the pipe that supplies the fire sprinklers. This control valve turns the water flow on and off. Your system may have additional or different features.
Turning off the water to your home will also turn off the water to your fire sprinklers.
Contact your sprinkler contractor if you have questions.
