    We are going to get certified to install residential fire suppression systems that are incorporated into the potable water system of a home. Wish I had done this when we built our home. I don't think I would do the whole home, probably just egress routes. Check it out Uponor.

    Wanted to do it when we built considering how quickly new homes burn. Cost was prohibitive considering it was ½ way through building when I learned about it.

    It does, I mean it can be added to an older house but it means pulling drywall.

    Could’ve been added we have plenty of flow and there was no drywall, but we had already committed to do other adds before I learned about it.

    Ya and you need to route your water system differently so you don't have dead end runs to the heads. That's the beauty of this system, the heads stay free of debris and don't fail when needed.

    The numbers I've seen, says it adds $.85 to $ 1.5 per foot to a home. And your insurance rates go down.

    How do they work? Is it a dry system? We just bought some land and we have to have a system in the house we build. What about freezing?
    Thanks!
