The residual pressure in FDC (fire department connection) on the roof which is the farthest point of the building’s fire protection system should be 65-100 psi but it needs to be coordinated with the local jurisdiction for the minimum required residual pressure at that area. Fire pump in high-rise buildings should be sized to provide the required residual pressure at the farthest user.
