Revise Section 6.2.2 to read as follows:

6.2.2 Where a well, pump, tank or combination thereof is the source of supply for a fire sprinkler system, the configuration for the system shall be one of the following:
  1. The water supply shall serve both domestic and fire sprinkler systems,
    1. A test connection shall be provided downstream of the pump that creates a flow of water equal to the smallest sprinkler on the system. The connection shall return water to the tank.
    2. Any disconnecting means for the pump shall be approved.
    3. A method for refilling the tank shall be piped to the tank.
    4. A method of seeing the water level in the tank shall be provided without having to open the tank.
    5. The pump shall not be permitted to sit directly on the floor.
  2. A stand-alone tank is permitted if the following conditions are met:
    1. The pump shall be connected to a 220-volt circuit breaker shared with a common household appliance (e.g., range, oven, dryer),
    2. The pump shall be a stainless steel 240-volt pump,
    3. A valve shall be provided to exercise the pump. The discharge of the exercise valve shall drain to the tank, and
