In this series, we're sharing the hydrostatic principles that provide the foundation for hydraulics that are used in fire suppression systems today.

Our objectives include:

  1. Understand what hydraulic concepts are important to the field of fire suppression.
  2. Introduce the five principles of hydrostatics.
  3. Work examples to establish how hydrostatics influences fluids in fire suppression systems.
