The sprinklers only operate if there is a fire inside. The heat breaks the glass piece in the sprinkler.

If you have no sprinklers and the fire is in your unit. Everything burns. So either it's potential for water damage or lose everything to fire. Then get the water damage from the fire fighters anyway.

According to the NFPA (the people that write the fire protection standards) fire depts use 10x the water to put out a fire compared to a sprinkler protected unit.

And its not like the moves where all the sprinklers go off at one time flooding everything.
