METHOD STATEMENT FOR INSTALLATION AND TESTING OF FIRE FIGHTING PIPES AND
SPRINKLERS
1.0 PURPOSE
To define the method and procedures for installation of fire fighting pipe works inside the building.
2.0 SCOPE OF WORKS
The Method is applicable to all Internal fire fighting pipes, riser's works and sprinklers.
3.0 PROCEDURE
Before commencement following works are required to be carried out.
a) Check work area is clean and safe.
b) Check materials to be used hae an approed material submittal and inspection.
c) Check drawings to be used hae an approed shop drawings submittal.
d) Check that the concrete is repaired, inspected and approed prior to installation of fire fighting
pipes and sprinklers.
4.0 INSTALLATION
Mark the routing of pipe work on slab ! concrete according to approed shop drawings.
"i# hangers and supports according to approed shop drawings.
Measure the length of pipe required, marking due allowance for an$ pipe fittings to be used.
Cut the pipe to the measured length.
The t$pe of %ointing method shall be threading for si&es '( mm and smaller, grooing for
si&es )'mm and larger.
*rooe %oints, starts b$ remoing dust and moisture. Check the face is square, lift the pipe,
rest the pipe one side on the stand+ other side insert between the grooing upper and lower
rollers, ad%ust the rollers to hold the pipe, start the grooing machine, appl$ h$draulic
pressure or manual pressure to grooe wheel till we reach the specified depth, %oin the pipes
with the approed grooe couplers.
Thread %oints, starts b$ remoing dust and moisture. Make the pipe at desired length, place
the pipe in between the machine and cut it b$ using cutter, use reamer to clear the edge,
pace the die head on position, turn the carriage hand wheel to bring dies against end of pipe,
continue appl$ing pressure to hand wheel to start dies, when desired length of thread has
been reached depress release handle to discharge latch, die head will open, appl$ %oint
compound, and tighten the %oint to leae less than , threads e#posed.
Close necessar$ open ends with end caps to keep pipe clean.

-ainting pipes+ .nsure that the surface is free of dust and all other contaminants before
proceeding for painting, appl$ wash primer with brush and rolling brush as first coat on pipe,
appl$ topcoat red enamel paint with brush and rolling brush, gie sufficient time for dr$ing to
touch and to full$ cure.
Carr$ out h$dro test as follows/
Cit$ water suppl$ will be used as a test media. -ressuri&ing hand or electric pump will be
used for pressuri&ing each completed line to the required test pressure.
Test head with pressure gauge and ale connection to the pressure pump shall be
connected to the installation.
0fter finishing the mounting of pipes the section to be tested of s$stem will be tested with
pressure of 1' bar.
Before testing the section all air must be ented.
0ll ales in the lines shall be in an open position during testing
0ll open pipes will be closed with plugs.
2o not use piping s$stem ales to isolate sections where test pressure e#ceeds ale
pressure rating.
The pressure will be increased up to the test pressure with 1 bar interals and the test takes
3 hours, in that period the pressure shall be maintained, in that period the piping s$stem shall
withstand the test pressure specified without showing an$ eidence of leakage or other
defects, an$ reduction of test pressures as indicated b$ pressure gauges shall be deemed to
indicate the presence of a leak unless such reduction can be readil$ attributed to some other
cause.
In case of unsatisfactor$ test, the place of leakage is repaired or replaced and the test is
repeated.
4pon satisfactor$ completion of the testing process the .ngineer shall sign the Test
Certification proided b$ the Contractor, copies of Test Certification shall be gien to the
.ngineer, .mplo$er and releant 0uthorities.
0fter successful testing of pipe work, start fi#ing the equipments, sprinklers, cabinets etc. and
do the final touch up of painting.

damage from 49 radiation.
-ipes should not be dragged along rough surface. :oading ; unloading of pipes should be
carried out b$ hand and use of skids should be aoided. -ipes should not be dropped on
hard surface.
Care should be taken before loading to check the ehicle load carr$ing area is free from nails
and other pro%ections. -ipes shall be properl$ supported during transportation. -ipe should
