Subject: Sump Pump Calculation Checked by:

Building: Parking Approved by:

Determining Sump Pump Flow Rate

Assumptions:

1- Rainwater coming from ramps is totally removed by trenches

2- Sprinkler discharge is the only source of water

Fire Data:

Parking Type of Hazard Ordinary group I


2
Sprinkler protection Area (ft ) 130
2
Area of sprinkler Operation (ft ) 1500
2
Density (gpm/ft ) 0.15

Flow from Sprinklers (gpm) 225

Flow rate Analysis

* For a 90 min operation of the fire pump the total flow from sprinklers is 20250 Gal = 76545 liters

*Adopting a flow of 225 gpm or 14.19 l/s for a sump pump means that:
2
1. All sprinklers are activated within 1500 ft

2. The sump pump will remove all the water dishcarged instantaneously in 90 min

* If the total amount of 20250 gal are to be removed in 3 hours the pump flow rate would be 7.1 l/s

* If the total amount of 20250 gal are to be removed in 4 hours the pump flow rate would be 5.3 l/s

* The number of sprinkler in the operating area will be 11.54 say 12

Depending on the layout this number could be up to 14

* For a total flow rate of 225 gpm, the individual sprinkler flow rate is 18.75 gpm

* Assuming 3 sprinklers are first activated the total discharge flow is 56.25 gpm or 3.55 l/s

* Trench Data : Trench Average Height (m) 0.15

Length of trench serving one pit (m) 45

Volume of water in trenches (m ) 6.75

Pump flow rate to remove water in trenches in 15 min 7.5 l/s

Pump flow rate to remove water in trenches in 30 min 3.75 l/s

* Based on the above, three significant flow rate figures are simulated in the Table below
