I have a question on the difference between Fire Pumps vs. Sprinkler Booster pumps test header connections.
In NFPA 20 (2007 Edition) they speak of a test header connection to verify fire pump capacity via either a 3-way or 5-way connection depending on pump capacity. I have a test header with a flow meter installed and I am aware that test header connection is required for a "FIRE PUMPS".
My question .. does this also apply to " Sprinkler Booster Pumps"? They are also under NFPA 20 but little mention is made.
Should a test header be installed at all?
