The NFPA 25 contains the frequencies of performance for inspections that are to be conducted by a licensed fire protection services contractor.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW OFTEN SHOULD A COMMERCIAL FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM BE TESTED?
According to NFPA 25, this is the inspection schedule you should follow: Weekly or monthly: Inspect the gauges in dry, pre-action, and deluge systems as often as once a week. Wet pipe system gauges can go a month between inspections. Quarterly: Every three months, have the water flow alarm devices, valve supervisory alarm devices, supervisory signal devices, control valves, and hydraulic nameplates inspected. Annually: Once a year, inspect the hanger/seismic bracing, pipes and fittings, information signage, and spare sprinkler. 5 years: Conducting an internal inspection of sprinkler piping is only required once every five years. Tests are comprised of more in-depth physical checks.
WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON TYPE OF AUTOMATIC SPRINKLER SYSTEM?
The most common type of automatic fire sprinkler system that is used is called a Wet Fire Sprinkler System. A wet system will always have charged pressure to each sprinkler head on the system. It is able to activate at all times and should once the sprinkler head's liquid-filled bulb bursts at a minimum of 135 degrees fahrenheit.
HOW DO SPRINKLER HEADS BECOME ACTIVATED?
Modern fire sprinkler heads have different components that react to atmospheric temperature. A frangible bulb sprinkler has a liquid-filled glass bulb that holds the cap on the sprinkler orifice, preventing water flow. In case of a fire, as the temperature begins to rise, the liquid in the bulb expands. When the air temperature gets hot enough, the liquid expands to the point of breaking the bulb.
That lets the water pressure push off the cap. Water flows out of the orifice and hits the deflector. The deflector creates a spray that covers the specified area.
