A Pump Initiation board (PIB) is a pre-fabricated unit which is designed to perform weekly tests on the fire pump and jockey pump. The board allows for pressure to be dropped locally to the pressure switches without needing to discharge large amounts of water. The board effectively tricks the pumps into activating so that the “cut in” (and cut out) pressures (the point at which the pump is triggered) can be checked to ensure they are as designed. Any variation can be fixed by adjusting the pressure switches accordingly.
