Instead, perform a pipe sample metal loss analysis. This analysis directly observes the amount of metal left on your pipe wall, and it will gauge the current rate of corrosion and expected future life of your pipe.
Corrosion occurs over the life of a sprinkler system, but there are specific events when understanding your risk level is critical.
• When purchasing or selling a building
• During your 5-year internal inspection
• After leaks have developed on the system
ECS closes the gap between compliance and risk mitigation for property owners and managers.

Corrosion in fire sprinkler systems can occur without any outward signs. Although you may not have leaks now, code mandated system testing, and standard sprinkler system design makes corrosion and its resulting leaks inevitable.
Even if you don’t have leaks now, it is critical to perform proactive analysis to determine your system’s current level of damage. Think about it this way, we manage the lifecycle cost of almost every system in the building, but without knowledge of the current condition of your sprinkler system, its lifecycle cost can’t be managed.
