Eichler Residential Fire Sprinkler System
The pipe fitters showed up on Saturday and installed all of the fire sprinkler heads. They used fire-resistant CPVC pipe which is standard for residential applications. Ours will be encapsulated in the spray foam roof soon. I covered it with paper to block the UV rays which can make pipe brittle if left exposed. The heads will be recessed in the ceiling so all we’ll see is a flat round white disc where each head lives. If the temp reaches 150 degrees Fahrenheit, the solder melts on the head and the water comes out. The yellow plastic covers are just there to protect the heads during construction.
