Delran, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2019 -- As the leading source for sprinkler system installation in Philadelphia, PA, and the surrounding area, AMC Fire Protection is committed to providing second-to-none services while also educating their customers on fire prevention and system upkeep.

This month, the company is educating customers on some of the common causes of malfunctioning in fire sprinkler systems. According to AMC Fire Protection, one leading cause is unreliable water supplies. It is critical for fire sprinklers to be installed correctly; otherwise, the water supply may not be able to flow as it should. Another common cause is substandard protection for the steam turbine generator, due to the common misconception that a large dose of water will damage the turbine. In fact, a fire will ultimately cause much more damage to a turbine than water, making adequate protection vital.

Further, AMC Fire Protection states that another common cause of sprinkler malfunctions is the failure to take account of nearby sprinkler systems. Two fire sprinkler heads placed too close to each other can cause the heat-sensitive elements in each to malfunction, preventing either from emitting water. Additionally, even something as simple as corrosion from rust can cause malfunctioning. A trained technician should be consulted on how to best prevent rust from affecting one's sprinkler systems.

Interested parties who have any questions about their fire protection sprinkler system in Philadelphia, PA are encouraged to reach out and get in touch with AMC Fire Protection today by giving them a call at (856) 209-5887 or by visiting their website at
