  1. What some don’t realize is most “sprinkler saves” you’ll never hear about because in many areas of the country they aren’t reported.

    It’s economics. After many a “sprinkler save” building owners don’t want to turn to their insurance carrier out of fear the rates will be jacked up. Why report it anyway since cost of damage didn’t hit the deductible on the insurance?

    But Lord help us if there is a failure.
