A dry pipe valve system is often used in industrial and commercial fire sprinkler systems. This type of piping system fills the pipes with pressurized air or nitrogen instead of water. The air contains a remote valve, also known as a dry pipe valve, in a closed position. The dry pipe valve prevents water from entering the pipe until a fire causes one of the sprinklers to operate. If this occurs, then the valve releases the air, water flows into the pipe, and the sprinklers release the water onto the fire.
Dry valve sprinkler systems can be used in a variety of industrial and commercial buildings. Determining if this is the right sprinkler system for your building will require the help of a certified building inspector, fire chief, and your local fire regulations or standards. With this in mind, the dry pipe valve does offer a few advantages.
To learn more about the advantages of the dry pipe valve, as well as its applications within a sprinkler system, contact the experts at W.P. Law, Inc. For over 40 years W.P. Law has been providing building piping and sprinkler advice to businesses in the industrial and commercial spaces.

As the temperatures begin to dip throughout most of the country, and “chilly” instead of “balmy” is used to describe the night air, you need to start thinking about protecting your crops from frost. Frost can easily injure plants by causing ice crystals to form within the plant cells. When these crystals form, water becomes unavailable to the plant tissues, which causes the leaves to appear to be water-soaked, shriveled, brown, or black. To help you protect your crops from frost during the late fall season, we have gathered together a few helpful tips.
With these tips at the ready, you will be able to actively protect your crops from frost. Do you need help finding the right tools to protect your crops? Do you want to learn additional tips? If so, contact an expert at W.P. Law, Inc. Since 1979, W.P. Law has been helping farmers protect their crops throughout all seasons and temperature changes.
Commercial plumbing woes can be costly problems that might have been avoided with the proper pipe maintenance program. Building age, a shifting or settling foundation, outdated or low-quality materials, and general wear-and-tear can cause major piping issues. To determine if your existing piping system should be replaced, we have gathered together the top three signs that it is time to say goodbye to your building’s piping system.
Are you constantly repairing some aspect of your commercial piping system? Below are three signs that you should say “goodbye” to your costly repair and maintenance efforts, and, instead, say “hello” to a new commercial piping system.
When the doctor’s office leasing your building’s fifth floor fills out a maintenance request for a “leaky faucet” every week, it is time to explore replacing your existing piping system. Did you know that leaking fixtures and faucets can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water each year? These costly leaks are usually caused by worn out gaskets or other sealing mechanism failures. If left unattended they can destroy the surrounding area and potentially cause structural damage.
Does the water spike between “boiling” hot to “freezing” cold? If so, then your building’s water heater might be on its way out. Commercial water heaters need to be maintained and replaced on a regular basis. Failing to do so could cause your water heater to leak, or worse, explode!
Slow draining is typically the first sign that there is a clog in your piping system. Be on the lookout for toilets that require constant plunging; while backups are something that you never want to experience, they are a good warning sign for more serious piping issues. You should also be on the lookout for clogged drains, which can cause more extensive water damage.
Did you know that your pipes, fixtures, and toilets can silently leak throughout the day? Each year, your inefficient piping system might be wasting thousands of gallons of water, which equates to thousands of wasted dollars on your commercial water bill. To avoid these costly expenditures, make sure that any commercial piping and maintenance repairs are completed professionally and on time. When the time is right to replace your piping system, be sure to call the experts at W.P. Law, Inc. for help selecting your new commercial piping system. Since 1970 W.P. Law has been helping commercial buildings choose the best piping solutions to meet their needs.
