Per Canadian Electrical Code, a separate service feeder ahead of the main building disconnect or a separate service directly from the utility transformer is required for the fire pump. Having said that I have seen many installations where the fire pump is fed from a branch lockable breaker from the service entrance board. I couldn't find anywhere or any code/regulation that accepts above practice. Can somebody shed some lights when and what instances above practice is acceptable? Thanks
