Building owners and managers need to know when – and where – water may be present in their dry fire protection system(s). In traditional dry systems, Salamander Reservoirs should be installed at points designed to collect moisture such as low points, drum drips and auxiliary drains.
In mission-critical locations like data centers and colocation facilities that may use pre-action or interlocking fire protection systems, it is also important to know where water may be present. Residual water in systems like these can present a significant hazard to the equipment it was designed to protect. Therefore, it is recommended to install Salamander Reservoirs in strategic areas to alert to the presence of accumulated water. This way, it can be safely drained in a timely manner without posing a threat to the equipment the systems have been designed to protect.
