    Have not done a fire pump in awhile.

    Non seismic

    Non high rise or similar

    Can the fire pump be mounted directly to the floor?

    Latest NFPA 20 edition in use .

    Yes, but depending on the size of the pump I like to see them mounted on a isolation pad.

    It may, but not a good idea for long term maintenance or for life of slab.
