The suppression system is designed to put out fires. It's definitely not designed for this, and it also definitely is not connected into the pressure vessel, since there's nothing that can burn in there and the vessel is normally full of water anyway.|
It DOES feed into the containment building and can (given time) flood the building. Since that building is sealed it can (presumably) flood it to the top if they want to. But the only reason to do that is that they've lost the ability to get water into the pressure vessel. That's VERY bad.
