"One of the fire sprinkler industry's trade journals has a monthly feature called 'What's Wrong with This Picture?' where readers are invited to comment on obvious and not-so-obvious errors in fire protection system installations. So, what's wrong with this picture? From a code perspective, nothing, but it's a good opportunity to discuss placement of fire department connections for sprinklers, standpipes, and other water-based fire protection systems that may need pressure and volume supplemented by the fire department."
