Fire Sprinklers Facts

MYTH - Home fire sprinklers often leak or activate accidentally.
FACT - Home fire sprinkler systems are much like home plumbing systems: when installed and maintained properly, there is a very low risk of leaks. Each individual sprinkler is designed and calibrated to activate only when it senses a significant heat change, directing water to the area of the fire. Over the last 50 years, records indicate the likelihood of leaks from automatic sprinkler systems is very remote.
MYTH - When a fire occurs, every sprinkler will activate and everything in the house will be ruined.
FACT - In the event of a fire, only the sprinkler closest to the fire will activate, spraying water directly on the fire, leaving the rest of the house dry and secure. Ninety percent of the time, just one sprinkler operates.
MYTH - The water damage caused by the sprinkler system will be more extensive than fire damage.
FACT - Home fire sprinklers can significantly reduce property loss and damage due to a fire. The sprinkler will quickly control the heat and smoke from the fire, limiting damage to other areas of the house, giving residents valuable time to get out safely. Any resulting water damage from the sprinkler will be much less severe than the damage caused by water from fire-fighting hose lines. On average, home fire sprinkler systems use about eight times less water than fire hoses.
MYTH - Any time a smoke alarm goes off it will activate the home fire sprinklers.
FACT - This is incorrect. Each individual sprinkler is designed and calibrated to activate when it senses a significant heat change. They do not operate in response to smoke, burned toast, cooking vapors, steam, or an activating smoke alarm.
