As per mfr 1963 section 71B
(2) In every factory adequate provision of water-supply for fire fighting shall be made and where the
amount of water required in litres per minute is 550 litres or more as calculated from the formula
mentioned below, power-driven trailer pumps of adequate capacity shall be provided and
Water required in litres per minute =A + B + C + D/20
where A,B,C,D is the floor area calculated in sq. mtrs.
Does this means that if the water required in lit/min after calculating by the given formula comes to less than 550 lit/min we dont need the hydrant system to be installed??
