As firefighters in Wisconsin, Fire Inspector Guy Santelli and his wife are all too familiar with the tragic potential of fires in unsprinklered homes. For them, installing fire sprinklers in their new home was an easy choice: "We put fire sprinkler systems in our new home to protect our children. We want to protect our family the best we can," he says. Debunking some popular installation myths, Santelli points out that there really is no downside to fire sprinklers. For him, there were no additional costs or extraordinary water fees from the installation.
