Hydrant testing every 12 months is a legal and safety necessity.
It ensures that in the event of a fire, the fire brigade have all tools available to them, in good working order, to support them in their bid to save lives.
Underground fire hydrants also require regular inspection by a competent fire hydrant contractor and occasional maintenance to ensure that they will work correctly.
The hydrant installation and maintenance of privately owned Fire Hydrants are governed by British Standards and Building Regulations, in particular BS9990:2015.
Because maintenance of a privately owned Fire Hydrant is a legal requirement, it is important to use a specialist fire hydrant contractor for the testing, design, installation and maintenance.
