    Oh boy guess you guys aren't licensed fitters. I know for a fact in my location you can not use copper or pex from main to the heads. And you also need permits and inspections on the installs.

    No I am not a fitter however I am a licensed fire sprinkler master installer since Jan 1989,
    Yes you need permits and inspections ever where on new construction how ever this is an existing installation,
    and as such only needs to be recertified once a year or as local code requires

    #1 House fire sprinklers do come off the same water meter and supply as the house,
    #2 Both copper and pex are accepted for fire sprinkler systems,
    #3 As to what was posted earlier almost all new home systems are piped with pex in a circle fashion for both potable water and the sprinkler use,
    I am aware of residential systems being installed this way were every thing is looped from sprinkler back to fixture and vice versa, IMO it's not method in which is better.

    You know all of this arguing back and forth is pointless. As I stated way back when: this is not a DIY job. The man needs a licensed fire installation person to fix this problem and it doesn't make squat what the problem is.
