Residential Sprinklers

Postby FireBB » Mon Feb 17, 2014 2:28 pm

Can anyone provide me with some guidance as to the practical requirements of installing a sprinkler system in a single family residence.

Existing building, within which I'm looking to add sprinklers on main floor and in basements and garage.

There's lots of info out there re: NFPA 13 (and its variants), but nothing detailed as to what specifically is required. E.g. Can I use PEX, can I do it myself (so long as the hydraulic calcs are completed appropriately), any recommendations re: best product.

Thanks in advance.
