Common Causes of Sprinkler Head Burst Water Damage

Sprinkler systems require competent and regular maintenance to stay in good working condition. While water damage can occur via sprinkler heads as a result of a fire, there are other reasons for sprinkler head burst water damage. Here are some common reasons that cause sprinkler malfunctions:

Corrosion

Corrosion of the pipes that distribute water affects the ability of sprinklers to function during a fire. The water from the sprinkler contains additives and minerals that permeate rust on the pipes and cause leaks. Corrosion also reduces water pressure required in a dangerous situation.

Overheating

A fire sprinkler system may stop working if it gets overheated. That means considering maximum internal heat temperature is important when you set the tolerance of your sprinkler system. Otherwise, you face the possibility of malfunctions and sprinkler head burst water damage.

Poor Installation

If a commercial or industrial property experiences a fire breakout, it is important that the sprinkler system has been installed properly to provide immediate, life-saving water supply. However, poor installation of the sprinkler system may cause a malfunction when it matters most.

Freezing

Freezing of the sprinkler system causes big problems. Pipes supply the sprinkler system throughout the property. However, some areas may not have sufficient insulation which causes ice buildup. In turn, the ice expands within the pipes, creating poor pressure, leaking, and cracks.
