Hydrant Testing - Apex Fire

Hydrant Testing

A fire hydrant is used to access water from the towns mains supply. The main purpose of fire hydrants is for the fire brigade to attach a hose to the valve in the event of a fire.

Many large premises such as

  • Hospitals

  • Manufacturing Plants

  • Business Parks

  • Factories

  • Universities

  • Leisure Parks

have privately owned water hydrants installed on site for use by the Fire Brigade in the event of a fire.

Any piece of fire equipment has to be maintained by a competent person at certain intervals. For a fire hydrant, a competent person needs to test and maintain a fire hydrant in accordance with BS9990:2006/BS5306 at least annually.

Hydrant Testing and maintenance should be conducted for both insurance purposes and to ensure operability if a fire was to occur.
