Fire Sprinkler Systems are made up of steel, water, and air. This combination is detrimental to Fire Sprinkler Systems, since it will lead to an Electro-Chemical Reaction that produces CORROSION. Additionally, water supplies and environmental conditions usually have the existence of Microbes and conditions that contribute to enhancing the effects of general corrosion in Fire Sprinkler Systems. Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) is a type of corrosion which is initiated by microbiological life forms and occurs often in fi­re sprinkler systems.
