Can multiple sprinkler systems be connected to a single air compressor/nitrogen generator?
NFPA 13 states that the 30-minute fill time would be based on the single largest system; so I'm assuming it's permitted and under this arrangement an air maintenance device would be needed to maintain the pressure in each system.
