#CREPN 25 – How to Minimize Fire Sprinkler Water Damage to Your Building

J. Darrin Gross Podcast

If you own, live or work in a building with a Fire Sprinkler System, you will appreciate my interview with Matt Scarpuzzi, owner of QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tools who has developed a tool that allows you to minimize fire sprinkler water damage to your building.


Since the mid 1940’s buildings of size and particular use have been built with an Automatic Fire Suppression System, or Sprinkler System.

Early on, building owners found that the cost of installing a sprinkler system was off set with substantial discounts on Fire Insurance. Systems have proven over time to save lives and property from significant damage.

Sprinkler heads deliver between 30 -100 gallons of water per minute. When putting out a fire, this is great. Once a fire is out, the system will continue to run until the supply line is drained, which can cause significant building damage from water including mold.

That’s what led San Diego Fireman Matt Scarpuzzi to develop the QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tool.

The QuickStop Fire Sprinkler Tool has been used and tested by firemen worldwide and saved property owners and insurance companies thousands in fire sprinkler damage avoided. In April 2014, Matt appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank.
