Fire Suppression for Remote Pump Houses

remote pump house

What is a remote pump house?

A remote pump house is a type of mechanical room that is within the building or outside of the main building it serves. It contains pumps for central heating and cooling systems, domestic water, fire protection systems, water heaters, boilers, controllers, and other equipment. The pump room is separate from the main building for several reasons:

• It may not have been practical to include the pump house in the main floor plan of the building it serves
• If there was a fire within the main building served by the pump house, the mechanical systems would not be compromised
• The remote pump house may be part of a central plant, where it serves multiple buildings on the same campus

High-Risk Special Hazards

A remote pump house building is a great example of a high-risk application that is normally a good candidate for fire suppression. However, to confirm a remote pump house is a good candidate for fire suppression, a risk analysis must be performed.

The risk analysis would depend on the purpose of the pump house, the fluids it is pumping, the types of building(s) it serves, and the types and quantities of combustible materials within the remote pump house. For example, pumps that are supplying a campus with potable water would be considered high risk, because, without them, the occupants of the campus would be without potable water. For that reason alone, they should be protected with fire suppression, as a fire would represent a health hazard or crisis.
