Thank you for your interest in Living Water Designs!
If you're in need of a residential fire sprinkler system design, I can provide you with a complete fire sprinkler plan, including hydraulic calculations, which can be submitted to your local Fire Marshall and/or Building Department.
I have over 15 years' experience designing fire sprinkler systems for fire sprinkler contractors, home builders, plumbing contractors, architectural firms, and owner/builders. Plans are designed according to National Fire Protection Association's 13D standard. Sample plans and references are available upon request.
The 2 types of residential systems are "stand alone" (system (overhead)) supplies fire sprinklers only and is usually CPVC pipe, but can be PEX) and "multi-purpose" (system (overhead)) supplies fire sprinklers and domestic fixtures and is usually PEX tubing, but can be CPVC). Both types of systems are supplied with one domestic water line from the meter, tank, or well. (See "Project Data Instructions" on the Design Page.)
Fire sprinkler codes and requirements vary between states, counties and cities. Please contact your local jurisdiction to obtain their specific residential fire sprinkler codes and submittal requirements. They will need to know if the project is an owner/builder installation or contractor installation. (Please note: If you are a homeowner and you're not planning to install the system yourself (owner/builder), it would be best to find a fire sprinkler contractor first since some of them have their own in-house designer and prefer to use their own plans. I may be able to recommend someone depending on your location.)
* No license or stamp required
* N.I.C.E.T. stamp required (I hold a level III)
* Stamped by a state-licensed, fire protection engineer (available for California)
* Designed and stamped by a state-licensed fire protection contractor
(C-16 licensed design is available for projects in California)
If you would like a free proposal, please contact your local jurisdiction first and obtain their residential fire sprinkler submittal requirements. After you have obtained the submittal requirements, please see the Design Page for information that I need in order to provide a proposal. (I am currently not accepting additions, remodels, retrofits, or projects without plans.)
