Automist's Annual Maintenance | Yearly Service

Automist MaintenanceHistorical data shows that when traditional sprinklers fail in the home, it’s because the system is shut off (59%) or due to lack of maintenance (10%) (NFPA Research).

Automist's maintenance procedure replicates a full response to a fire. So unlike a traditional domestic sprinkler service, we don’t just complete a series of checks, we run the pump for approximately 1 minute, as it would in a fire, and record the output pressure. A shield is provided to collect the water in a bucket, so the process is quick and will not cause any mess.

Servicing is a vital requirement to ensure any active fire suppression system will perform as expected in the event it is called upon to do so. The British Standard BS9251:2014 (fire sprinklers) and BS8458:2015 (water mist) recommends that a fire system is serviced by a competent person on a regular basis. We would suggest this should be done no less than once every 12 months.

Depending on the use of the property, there could be a legal requirement for the system to be serviced on an ongoing basis. If you are a landlord, as an example, you must ensure you do this as there could be serious implications under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 England and Wales or The Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006.
