How should I properly be sizing a vertical branch line that feeds only a five-story trash chute?
Would a hydraulic calculation be a line calculation, so I would calculate as many as five sprinklers?
I typically feed sprinklers from the adjacent floor level, so I've never ran a separate calculation just for a trash chute. My gut says a 1-inch threaded line isn't enough for a trash chute, but I'm not 100% positive how a hydraulic calculation should be done here.
