sprinklers

Sprinklers are only specified in homes within Wales. Every room in your home, except for the cupboards, contains a sprinkler, each covered with a cap. You can untwist the cap to reveal the sprinkler head, which is set off when the heat from the system melts the solder, allowing the water to flow out. The isolator valve is located in the loft of your home.

Please ensure you have your sprinklers serviced once a year.
