Your protection - quickly done:

Laboratory testing of old sprinkler heads

Ageing processes can completely seal sprinklers - watertight.

Therefore, an important part of the old system test recommended + required by insurance companies in accordance with DIN EN 12845:

The laboratory examination of installed sprinkler heads.
