Like all other equipment, fire pumps deteriorate over time.

For all your fire pump inspection needs.
One of the most crucial steps of fire pump inspection is making sure your fire pump’s couplings are aligned properly. There are many factors that can affect alignment, including thermal expansion and equipment maintenance. Couplings that are misaligned are far more likely to fail and could cause disruption of service.Circulation relief valves are usually mounted on the neck of the discharge flange, and prevent the fire pump from overheating when the pump is operating at shutof condition.
