I am doing some work on a combined fire-fighting/domestic pump house for a small community.
A couple things look odd to me.
There seem to be two deviations from NFPA standards here:
First, the jockey pump should be small , so that in case of fire it is the fire pump taking the load, and second, the starting sequence requires the jockey pump to start above the fire pump churn, the first fire pump a little lower and so on.
Is there any exception for such combined domestic/fire protection systems in the NFPA line of standards?
