The vast majority of sprinkler systems that are installed are very simple in design and operation. There are some methods of making the control of sprinkler systems more sophisticated, but essentially, they are very straightforward.

They comprise of: a water supply, which may be the town mains in the street, where this is adequate in capability, or a water tank and pump or similar self-contained water source a means of controlling the supply of water into the sprinkler system, usually comprising sets of valves a network of pipes which feeds water from the supply to the sprinkler heads an array of sprinkler heads, strategically placed throughout the protected area.

Some buildings need to be fitted with automatic sprinklers as part of a package of provisions to comply with the Building Regulations.
