Information for Sprinkler Contractors
Submitting Flow Calculations
Sprinkler contractors submitting their flow calculations shall be based on drought conditions. To calculate using required Tamarac Fire Rescue Drought Conditions, take a flow test data and establish slope of flow:
  • Example:
    • Static 70
    • Flow 55
    • Residual 60

Then utilize static of 45 and using same slop established by field flow data, determine what the GPM will be with a residual of 20 psi. You then show both slopes on your submitted graph. Sprinkler systems should fall within limitations that allow for 20 psi residual for firefighting purposes.
