Maintenance of sprinkler systems

From: Karen Potje <kpotje>

Among the various fire control systems at the Canadian Centre for
Architecture is a wet pipe sprinkler system that was adapted to be a
dry pipe system ten years ago.  Over the course of the next year, we
will be cleaning and updating this system and it will again be a wet
pipe system. Obviously such renovation projects affect far more than
the fire control system as the pipes run through some office and
gallery spaces.  We would be interested in hearing from other
institutions that have done similar cleaning/renovation projects in
recent years.  Any advice on how to proceed or warnings about what
to watch out for would be appreciated.
