Did You Know? By installing an FDC (Fire Department Connection) directly on our mobile temporary fire pump units, RFP.com can satisfy the hydraulic demand of your most remote fire sprinkler system. This restores the critical fire sprinkler system(s) to service and simply converts the building’s standpipes to “Manual Wet” type, a common design that relies on the fire department to supply additional flow and pressure to the Fireman’s Hose Valves by pulling water from a fire hydrant and boosting pressure and flow to the standpipes.
