My employer owns several properties in with 2 fire pumps that are discharging to the same loop. The pumps were there when we bought the buildings. In most cases there is one electric and one diesel, but in other cases there are two diesel fire pumps.
The power purveyor is not considered unreliable by any criteria.
Is there anything you can think of that would prohibit me from decommissioning a redundant pump for the purpose of saving on maintenance costs?
Each pump is 2000 gpm and the greatest demand on the loop is less than 3,000 gpm. The pumps are provided in parallel.
