Standpipe systems are a series of pipes within a building that supply water for the fire suppression hose lines. A standpipe system is an extension of the fire hydrant system into a building so that firefighters can connect a hose to a water source and manually fight a fire without pulling the hose floor to floor.
All standpipe systems in NY and in the five boroughs are required to be maintained in compliance with NFPA 25. The standard requires a weekly/monthly inspection of the control values. They also require a quarterly inspection of the pressure regulating devices and an annual inspection of the storage cabinets, hose and nozzles.
The pressure control valves and pressure reducing valves are tested every five years. The standpipe system must have a hydrostatic test, flow test and main drain test every five years. These tests are to ensure your system will work properly in the case of an emergency.
