Checklist for Commissioning of Fire, Water, Drainage and Water Treatment Equipment

Checklist for Commissioning of Fire Protection System
  1. Check all hydrant & other valves by opening and closing. Any valve found to be open shall be closed.
  2. Check all clamps, supports and hangers provided for the pipes.
  3. All the pump sets shall be run continuously for 30 minutes (with temporary piping back to tank from the nearest hydrant, using canvas hose pipes).
  4. Fire Hydrant System - Pressurize the fire hydrant system by running the jockey pump and after it attains the shutoff pressure of the pump, then
  5. Open bypass valve and allow the pressure to drop in the system. Check that the jockey pump cuts-in and cuts-out at the preset pressure. If necessary adjust the pressure switch for the jockey pump. Close by-pass valve.
  6. Open hydrant valve and allow the water to flow into the fire water tank in order to avoid wastage of water. The main fire pump shall cut-in at the preset pressure and shall not cutout automatically on reaching the normal line pressure. The main fire pump shall stop only by manual push button. However the jockey pump shall cut-out as soon as the main pump starts.
  7. Operate booster pump continuously for 30 minutes with piping back to underground tanks from the hydrant nearest to plant room.
  8. Check each landing valve, male and female couplings and branch pipes, for compatibility with each other. Any fitting which is found to be incompatible and do not fit into the other properly shall be replaced by the Contractor. Each landing valve shall also be checked by opening and closing under pressure.
  9. Check air cushion tanks on the terrace for proper functioning.

Sprinkler System

Close the floor isolation valve (fitted with tamper switch) and check for annunciation in Fire Panel in control room / BMS. Also check in Fire panel in control room / BMS, whether the flow switch indication is registered for the particular floor / zone with test drain open.

Checklist for Commissioning of Water Supply, Drainage and Water Treatment Equipment

  1. Operate each and every valve on the system to see if the valves are functioning properly.
  2. Check all clamps, support and hangers provided for the pipes.
  3. Check rotation of each motor and correct the same if required.
  4. All the pumps shall run continuously for one hour. Record the pressure and motor current and voltage readings.
  5. Check all annunciations by simulating the alarm conditions if any at site.
  6. Remove grease trap manhole covers. Check for cleanliness, check for partitions, and put back the cover.
  7. Remove manhole covers on sewer lines, inspect for cleanliness. After they are found to be clean, pour water into the first manhole and see that all the lines are clear. Make sure that all the covers are put back after the inspection.
  8. Check gully traps by opening of covers and check that water seal in the traps are maintained. Check for general cleanliness.
  9. Check installation of proper vents and cowls at the roof level for all soil and waste pipes.
  10. Performance test to be carried out and recorded in the following table for the pumps.

Simulate low level in the domestic water tanks to trip domestic Filter Feed Pumps. Simulate high level in treated water tanks to trip softener feed pumps. Simulate low level in treated water tanks to trip treated water hydro-pneumatic pumps.

Submersible Sump Pumps
  1. Fill the sump with water, while observing the level.
  2. Keep the pump starter switch on ‘OFF’ position to check for start of pump.
  3. By keeping the starter switch on ‘Auto’ position, both the pumps should start. As the water level starts receeding, one pump should switch off by itself. The second pump should switch off on further reduction in water level.
  4. Fill the sump with a little water and check both the pumps in ‘Manual’ position momentarily.
  5. Leave the switches in ‘Auto’ position for both the pumps.
Thoroughly back wash the filters, before putting them on line.
Operate the filter feed pump and record the pressure at the inlet and outlet ports of the filters. This will give us the pressure drop across clean filters for record purposes.

Softening Plant
The plant shall be run for 3 re-generations + 3 service cycles to establish output, quality of treated water.

Detailed checklists is attached below, you can modify it as per your Project requirements and specifications.
