Avoid tapping fees and lengthy meter upgrade delays

Many jurisdictions charge a tapping fee for fire sprinkler lines. The owner will be responsible for construction costs associated with tapping into the water lines and this may involve temporarily shutting down the street, excavation, piping, and replacement of ground material. Sometimes an existing water meter on the property isn't big enough to provide enough flow to the fire sprinkler system. In this instance, the water district will need to be contacted to upgrade the water meter. Depending on where the water main is located in relation to the meter, an extra cost may be needed if the existing publicly owned lateral is undersized (5/8").
