Fire Hydrant Testing in Stevenage
Private underground fire hydrants require regular inspection in accordance with BS 9990 to ensure that they will work in an emergency situation. This allows the fire brigade to connect their hoses in the vicinity of the fire to access water more easily.
Fire hydrants should be inspected and tested once per year to ensure the water pressure and flow rate are adequate, the results should be recorded. Since 1989, it has been the responsibility of a building's owner / occupier to keep its fire hydrant systems in working order.
Our fire hydrant testing in Stevenage will show if your fire hydrants are achieving the required flow rates as requested by your local fire brigade or fire risk assessment (This is your responsibility to obtain this information).
We use flow meters supplied by Vernon Morris who are one of the UK's most trusted suppliers of fire hydrant testing equipment.
If there are any small parts required like false spindles, Caps and H Plates these can be fitted during the testing to ensure the hydrants work and be identified as they should at all times. We can also paint the hydrant covers yellow should they be fading or not painted.
If your Fire Hydrants are set too deep in the hydrant pit we can have hydrant extension pipes manufactured which ensure standpipes are easier to attach in an emergency situation.
A report for each fire hydrant is issued after the testing has been completed.
