Perhaps you may want to review this thread.  Unfortunately, some of the video links are broken, but if you go to the KSC video library, and search on "Sound suppression water test", you will get two video clips and stills.

Cheers!
One problem though... I get the message "The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you." when clicking on your link.

I've read the 3 pages, very interresting stills, but no information on when the deluge inside the SRBs holes is started.

That's amazing to see how many deluges they have : 2 in SRBs holes, one for the SSMEs, one on the MLP with the rainbirds, one on the deflector edge and one in teh SRB trench, after the SRB deflector !!
... and I might even heve forgotten one.... :)

I believe the flame trenches (both SSME and SRB) start to flood at the same time, around T-10 seconds (don't quote me on that). The "rainbirds", which deluge the MLP deck, start after liftoff.

These questions are probably better off in the Shuttle Q&A or LC39 Q&A threads.

Another cool thread. What will be the main difference between the RS-25D and RS-25E? Will actual hardware be removed?

Engineering answer? Basically cheaper turbopump design, since no need for re-use.

Cynical answer? One exists, the other won't.  ;D
