In 2017, the HOA Board made a change to how repairs to the fire sprinkler systems are covered.
Background: Each building in our community has a common fire sprinkler system which protects the entire building. These systems are filled with an expensive anti-freeze solution. If a system develops a leak or is triggered by fire, this solution is normally lost and must be replaced.
In the past, the responsibility for and expense of repairing a leaking system was the responsibility of the owner of the townhome(s) where the leak occurred. This is an expense which typically runs in the thousands of dollars and sometimes led to repairs taking longer than expected. As a result, building went unprotected for too long. Because of this, the board concluded that a policy change was needed to ensure the integrity of these critical systems.
*Policy change: The HOA will contract for and supervise ALL fire sprinkler system repairs. The cost of any unexpected repairs will be divided equally to each townhome in the affected building and billed to the owners of record by special assessment. Note: This change does not apply to riser room repair, inspection, and monitoring which is already handled by the HOA and paid for from general operating funds. Nor does it affect the repair of damage to the physical structure which remains the responsibility of the homeowner.
Frisco Fire Department responds to all triggered alarms, however leaks can occur which do not flow enough water to trigger an alarm.
If you have or suspect a fire sprinkler leak, immediately notify our fire sprinkler vendor (see contact info above), the Frisco Fire Department, and the HOA Board (through the HOA Messenger App) so that the system can be depressurized and repaired.
Fire sprinkler leaks can be differentiated from water leaks by the oily nature of the anti-freeze solution and it's orange color. Contact with anti-freeze should be avoided.
Homeowners insurance will pay for damage to your property in the event of a leak but not for fire sprinkler repairs. If you rent please protect your belongings with a renters insurance policy. The homeowners insurance policy will probably not cover your possessions.
