Our project is a 16-bed hospice facility. The project site does not have a municipal water supply. The project is under NFPA 13, mostly Light Hazard, and an ancillary storage space in the basement is Ordinary Hazard.
We've designed a water storage tank which is buried outside. The discharge of the tank is approximately 5-feet above the suction side of a fire pump supplying the sprinkler system.
I've designated the pump as a sprinkler booster pump and supplied power from an emergency MDP (main disconnect panel). The electrician is asking for a few details concerning the pump designation.
Is the fire pump required to have a separate service with a dedicated ATS (automatic transfer switch)?
