Location:102 Yacht Harbor Dr, Palm Coast, FL 32137
Project Type: Luxury Condominiums
Synopsis: Electric fire pump failure leaves waterfront condominium property without fire protection and facing lengthy fire watch leaving residents exposed to potential risk without life safety protection.
Yacht Harbor Village at Hammock Beach’s electric fire pump suffered damage and failed to provide adequate flow and pressure to satisfy their building’s fire sprinkler system demand. Facing a lengthy delay due to extended replacement equipment lead times, the properties’ veteran Chief Engineer “Ben Ortiz” knew where to turn for an immediate solution.
By contacting the Life Safety Professionals at RentFirePumps.com a compatible mobile temporary fire pump unit was identified and delivered the next business day.
Sprinklermatic Fire Protection Systems, Inc. the properties’ local fire protection contractor responded with a crew of technicians to connect the mobile unit to the fire-line backflow prevention device and supply water to the building through the incoming city supply line utilizing the existing bypass on the fire pump piping configuration.
Solution: RentFirePumps.com delivered a mobile temporary fire pump solution to provide adequate water flow and pressure needed to meet the design density requirements of the building’s most remote fire sprinkler system(s).
Temporary Fire Pump: Diesel 750 GPM @ 175 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
