Residential Fire Sprinklers

AWWA recognizes the increasing use of residential fire sprinkler systems and recommends that they be designed by licensed or accredited professionals; approved by the appropriate local agencies (water utility, fire department and/or other approval agency) to ensure adequate flow, pressure, and backflow protection; and installed by licensed fire sprinkler contractors or properly‐trained personnel.
