## What is the minimum distance between sprinkler heads?

The minimum spacing between two sprinklers is **6 feet**. The maximum distance a sprinkler can be installed from a wall is half the maximum spacing between two sprinklers. The minimum distance a sprinkler can be installed from a wall is 4 inches.

## What is the 18 inch rule?

The purpose of the “18-inch rule” is **to prevent storage or any other obstruction from interfering with the spray of water from a sprinkler head during a fire**. It is intended to prevent a situation in which the obstruction is within 18-inches of the ceiling and might be between the sprinkler head and the fire.

## How many sprinklers can I run on one line?

With your 10 gpm flow rate at your spigot, you could run **two sprinklers at 5 gpm each**. The best set-up is to run two hoses from the spigot–each to one sprinkler. Suggested sprinklers for this set-up are the Residential Sled Base Sprinklers or the Tripod Sprinklers.

## How far can a sprinkler head be off a wall?

from a single wall. Again, normally, standard spray sprinklers can be placed up to **7.5 ft.** (2.3 m) from any wall.

## How many square feet does a sprinkler head cover?
