When 20 or fewer sprinklers are involved in a modification, codes and standards suggest new hydraulic calculations are not required.
What is the scientific or engineering basis for the "20-sprinkler" number?
Is there some study or analysis that found this to be a reasonable breakpoint?
I'm researching whether we should require full plans for less than 20 sprinklers. Thanks!
