Please can someone give some information regarding the filling speed of a empty pipeline to a sprinkler line?
In my case there was water hammer in a 6” line, The 16” firewater line was under 175 psi pressure and the opening time was 9 seconds.
Is 3 feet per second more realistic? Or is there a NFPA standard that addresses this? Thanks in advance for your support!
