Project Name: Vintage Bay at Marco Island
Location: 269 Vintage Bay Drive, Marco Island, FL 34145
Project Type: Condominiums
Synopsis: Diesel fire pump failure leaves Vintage Bay without fire protection and facing lengthy fire-watch due to extended lead times on replacement equipment.
Details: Vintage Bay experienced fire pump failure due to a faulty controller motherboard and lack of fire pump performance during annual testing. Without adequate flow and pressure to the fire sprinkler system, the properties management team and homeowner’s association were left searching for an immediate solution. With the help of an experienced board member, they connected with Sprinklermatic and RentFirePumps.com who had the capability to provide an immediate solution.
Solution: A mobile temporary fire pump was mobilized and installed within 24-hours. Full capacity flow testing was performed to confirm that the mobile unit was capable of meeting the fire sprinkler system(s) demand.
Temporary Fire Pump: Diesel 750 GPM @ 140 PSI – FP Controller (110 v) – Jockey Pump – JP Controller – Test Header –Discharge – Pressure relief valve (Dial in the required pressure) – Day Tank – Low Fuel Alarm
