All Automist systems use a dry high-pressure hydraulic hose. These are placed behind a 30-minute fire resistance separation, such as plasterboard, to avoid damage during fire fighting. By being dry, they avoid the typical issues of traditional wet pipe systems: Legionella, corrosion, bacterial growth, water damage due to bursting under pressure.
