Reports of water damage from fires in buildings with automatic suppression are often exaggerated. Only the heads over a fire that starts actually open.

A valuable item sprayed with water from a sprinkler head as it puts out a fire can usually be recovered or restored. One that is burnt to a cinder and flushed down the drain by a fire hose is another matter!

Sprinklers opening by accident is almost unheard of and approximately 1 in 16 million heads are found to be defective.
