Living with Sprinklers™

Protect Your System

Make sure nothing is blocking your sprinklers.

Keep pictures and large furniture away from sprinklers on walls.

Hang lamps and plants away from ceiling sprinklers.

Do not hang anything on sprinklers or pipes.

Even lightweight items can damage sprinklers.

Do Not Paint the Fire Sprinkler or the Cover

Paint may stop the fire sprinkler from working correctly. It may take longer for the fire sprinkler to go off or it may not work at all.

While doing messy work, such as painting, cover the fire sprinklers with plastic.

Important: Remove the plastic as soon as you are finished.

Be careful when you are moving large or tall items.

Don’t bump sprinklers or exposed pipes. Teach children not to touch or play with sprinklers.
