Hydrant testing is a legal requirement
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 installation and maintenance of privately owned Fire Hydrants is governed by British Standards and Building Regulations, in particular BS9990:2015.
Testing is an annual requirement for all private property owners though out the UK where Hydrants are present. Our testing typically covers the following areas;
- Flow test in Litres per minute
- Pressure test in BAR
- Pit and Cover condition
- Depth of valve
We utilise the latest ultrasonic Flowpod 3000 flow tester to ensure accurate readings.
