Regular fire hydrant testing ensures that in the event of a fire, the fire service have all tools available to them in good working order.
Fire hydrant testing is an annual requirement for all private property owners though out the UK where fire hydrants are present.
Underground hydrants also require regular inspection by a competent contractor and occasional maintenance to ensure that they will work correctly should they be needed.
The installation and maintenance of privately owned fire hydrants is governed by British Standards and Building Regulations, in particular BS9990:2015.
Our annual testing covers the following areas:
- Flow test in Litres per minute
- Pressure test in BAR
- Pit and cover condition
- Depth of valve
We use the latest in fire hydrant testing technology, the Flowmaster 250DL flow tester, to ensure accurate readings.
As a specialist fire hydrant service company, we offer comprehensive testing which meets all the legal requirements and will provide a report with graphs to show the findings of the tests carried out.
