Hello lovely forum. Recently there was a question on taking the FDC off the fire pump bypass as long as it was downstream of any control valves on the pump bypass.
[Moderator Note: link to that question is here: https://www.meyerfire.com/daily/allowed-to-tap-fdc-into-fire-pump-bypass]
Building off that question, I have seen freestanding fire department connections being feed into an exterior hotbox that has the backflow preventer. This setup is before the feeds enter the building, and before going to a fire pump inside the building (and control valves before the pump).
Is this a violation of code, for having control valves on the FDC line before the valve header?
Thanks for your time.
