Do not overtighten it. Follow manufacture recommendations.
Pulling a vacuum on the system during change out should mitigate the water.

Here we go to all you sprinkler fitters:

CPVC system, dry side wall to cover an apartment patio and balcony, gotta use a female adapter which will be above the ceiling in a livingroom, so how do you replace the dry head 10 years later?

Interesting. Is that the uppermost floor? No inspectors test piped from uppermost point?

   The boiler in our 4 story commercial building failed last nite. The sprinkler pipes on the 4th floor read 20 degrees F using a laser gun thermometer. This is a wet system. Why didn't the frozen pipes freeze and burst??? Could it be that there is air in the system on the upper floors?

We are sprinklerfitters...not metallurgists or home appliance specialists. Ask your insurance representative.

A question for the experts if I may...I own a Condo in Florida and the 2 inch high pressure pipe outside the unit right above me flooded the unit right above me, I had 2 inches of water in my unit, the water was a heavy rust color..my question is,

Is the water corrosive with all that rust that was in the water?
Will all my appliances and anything metal that was in touch with the standing water at risk of pre mature rusting?
 
Thanks in advance
Gordon in Florida

Is it better to use smarter technologies for fire protection and other security options. I happened to read an article http://www.fire-monitoring.com/smarter-tec...ommercial-security/ and thought of sharing it with you all. This will be useful to predict and react to hazardous situation.
