Sprinkler System Installer
Sprinkler system installers do installation and repair of fire protection sprinkler systems in a variety of buildings and settings. They work with piping, tubing, accessories and connections. They test sprinkler and fire protection systems for leaks with air or liquid pressure. Sprinkler system installers also install exterior fire protection services, which require an understanding of system and installation drawings and specifications. Integration of sprinkler systems with thermal storage systems is an increasing part of a sprinkler worker's job.
