For sprinklers, I break down what is being used for pipe, how often it is being used, the volume of the pipe and the additional weight due to the water. Tack on a little bit of fudge factor for fittings, spread this load out over the entire roof area, if I see it is possible, badda-bing badda-boom, I have a dead load.
Be *real* careful of the larger main sprinkler pipes, especially those parallel to roof framing members--they can provide a pretty significant load.
