Installation on a Wet Sprinkler System
Step 1: Preparation for Installation
Recommended installation begins after a sprinkler technician has installed a nipple, ball valve and plug to receive the Salamander Reservoir.
Step 2: Attach the Salamander Reservoir
Leave the ball valve between the system and the Salamander Reservoir in the closed position and attach the Salamander Reservoir.
Be sure to leave the Salamander Reservoir’s ball valve slightly ajar before beginning Step 3.
Step 3: Bleed the Air from the Reservoir
Slowly open the ball valve between the system and the Salamander Reservoir about a quarter of a turn. This will allow the reservoir to fully fill with water, and bled out any air from the system.
Once water has bled out of the bleed valve for a few seconds, close the ball valve on the Salamander Reservoir, and screw in the ball valve plug.
The Reservoir is now full of water, and at equal pressure to the rest of the sprinkler system.
Step 4: Final Positioning
Fully open the ball valve between the system and the Salamander Reservoir and ensure connectivity between the sensor and the gateway.
