1.Check the age of your sprinkler system. If the system has been in use for longer than 50 years, it's time to replace it. Otherwise, check NFPA 25 requirements on your specific sprinkler system. 

2.Check the installation of the sprinklers. Faulty installation could result in malfunctions in the event of a fire.
