The Tin House (Part 4)

Good Morning. I'm just finishing the sprinkler system for the first floor.

For those of you who don't know about such things, I thought I'd explain how a sprinkler system works. Basically it is full of water at all times. There are sprinkler heads placed to cover the whole area of the interior space. Each sprinkler head has a piece that will melt when a preset temperature is reach in the covered area. That allows the water in the pipes to flow and extinguish the fire.

Here's a closer look at some to the details of this sprinkler system.

The flower petal looking thing is the actual sprinkler head. The area that a particular head covers, overlaps with the other close by heads. When water flows in the system, a fire bell on the outside of the structure will clang. At that time, Taelyn and his Fire Truck will repond.

I'll be starting on the second floor, next. As always it was good to see you, stop by anytime.
