Sprinkler Systems, Fire Pumps & Backflows

Wet-valves, dry-valves, pre-action & detection systems, foam systems… it may all seem a little overwhelming.

Let us be your expert on servicing your water based fire protection systems. We can document what you have, what the service requirements are, and the best ways to insure that your water based system(s) continue to function properly for years to come.

Service Is Our Focus

Sprinkler system inspection and service is our specialty. 25,000 customers rely on Silco for periodic inspection and service of critical fire protection equipment. Many Sprinkler installation firms do inspections in between installation jobs or when new installation work slows down. We find in many cases this practice frequently results in “overdue inspections” which can cause serious liability concerns. With Silco, inspection, service, and repairs are our mainstay. They always come first.

Interconnected Systems

In addition to wet and dry sprinkler systems, Silco has extensive expertise with pre-action, deluge, and foam sprinkler systems. All Silco sprinkler technicians also carry fire alarm and engineered suppression systems licenses allowing them to test your entire “system” instead of only the sprinkler components. Where these systems interconnect are some of the most critical components of the system and are often not tested properly, or sometimes not tested at all.

Services Performed In House

While many companies subcontract larger repairs or even fire pump testing, Silco self performs these services.
We install, inspect, and service sprinkler systems

Confined Space Safety

Sprinkler pits are Permit Required Confined Spaces according to OSHA. All Silco personnel are certified in Confined Space Entry. The breathing environment in the pit is metered prior to and during the entry. A tripod with a safety line is used and a second technician (the attendant) remains outside the pit.

Electrical Safety

When testing most electric fire pumps, the pump tester is required to take electrical readings inside the pump controller which contains 480 volts. Serious injury and death has resulted from the arc flash hazard that exists when working in proximity to 480 volts. Silco has invested in a new digital wireless technology that allows our testers to not be in the hazard area when testing fire pumps.

Emergency Service

Emergency Service is available 24 Hours a Day, 365 Days a Year. Call us, we will be here.

Excellent work performed by Luke. When you pay a company to maintain equipment that protects your business, you better get it right. Silco is a VAST improvement over my past company out of Cincinnati. Thank you Luke and Silco. You've earned your review with excellence. Sawyer's Downtown. Lexington, Ky

Annual Visits are a breeze and their reporting to the fire department is an excellent new benefit. I have been utilizing their services for almost 10 years and am delighted that we are always in a safe way with their inspections and certification products. Joe Martini is a friendly and knowledgeable individual who makes the process fun and enjoyable.
