Fire Hydrant Testing

SERVICED TO BS:5306 Part 1

Periodical inspections of the vicinity of all hydrants should also be made to ensure that there are no obstructions impeding accessibility and that hydrant indicator plates are in position. Periodical inspection should be made to ensure that all isolating valves for systems are kept locked in an open position. Also flow and pressure should be checked to ensure that supplies have not deteriorated.

In addition to determining flow rates, testing can uncover a number of mechanical problems from valves that don't operate properly to leaks. It is imperative that we discover problems and get them repaired before the hydrant is needed in an emergency situation.
