I want to install sprinklers in a new building but I have been advised that the water supply from the local mains is inadequate. Can I still install a sprinkler system?

The simplest solution in this case is to install a water storage tank and the necessary pump/s. Other options include a dedicated water supply (for example, a larger diameter water supply connection)- this will depend on the distance of the property from the nearest large service main however consideration must be given to any minimum guarantee for flow and pressure. Some water authorities may permit the installation of a booster pump between the supply and the sprinkler system.
