      ***********************************************************************************************************************************************                                                                               FIRE PUMP TESTING:

A fire pump is a part of a fire sprinkler system's water supply and powered by electric or diesel fuel. In Streetsboro, the pump intake is connected to the public underground water supply piping and provides water flow at a higher pressure to the sprinkler system risers and hose standpipes. Each year, fire codes require testing of each fire pump to ensure it can deliver up to 150% of its rated capacity. These tests are conducted at specific times to provide the least impact on family and food service activities. Tests are conducted by private contractors, not the fire department. Fire Department Inspectors and Water Department personnel witness the tests to ensure accuracy of the test and safety of the water system.

Scheduled fire pump tests will be listed on our Facebook page. You can also subscribe to a general e-mail notification for fire pump tests by emailing your name and confirmed email address to kgrimm@streetsborofire.com. You will receive notification of all fire pump tests when they are originally scheduled.

City water customers may experience water discoloration during and after a fire pump test. If this occurs, run your COLD water run for a 5-10 minutes to clear. If after 10 minutes water has not cleared, wait 1 hour and repeat running COLD water for no more than 10 minutes. If the problem persists or occurs at other times, please contact the Streetsboro Water Department at 330-626-2856 for further investigation. Please do not contact the fire department with complaints as we cannot fix water discoloration, nor can we stop fire pump tests from occurring. This is a fire code requirement. When scheduled, fire pump tests occur only once every week between March and November.
