Before the installation or alteration of a sprinkler system required by the provisions of this code, a plan, setting forth all essential details of the sprinkler system, shall be submitted to the bureau of fire prevention. The plans submitted shall include hydraulic calculations when calculated and the type of sprinklers to be used. Upon finding that the plan conforms to the requirements of the code and after payment of the sprinkler permit fee hereinafter specified, said plan shall be approved by the bureau of fire prevention.
The fees charged in connection with a sprinkler system shall be as follows:
For the approval of the sprinkler plan and the initial inspection of a sprinkler system required by the provisions of this code, a fee of $36.00 shall be charged for the first 100 sprinkler heads or less and an additional $18.00 for each additional 100 sprinkler heads or fraction thereof. For the test of a fire pump used in connection with a sprinkler system, a fee of $18.00 for each 50 gallons pumping capacity per minute shall be charged with a minimum fee of $180.00. These fees shall not be required for any building used solely as a school operated by the Chicago Board of Education. Where a pump serves both a standpipe and a sprinkler system, only one pump fee shall be charged.
