Fire Hydrants

A private underground fire hydrant is connected to the mains water supply and located on private property – typically large premises and estates. They should be easily identified by a yellow “H” sign and yellow hydrant cover with “FH” moulded into its cover. A Fire Hydrant is typically used by the fire brigade to replenish fire tender water tanks and for direct feed via a standpipe to flat lay hoses used by the fire brigade to tackle a fire.

BS 9990 requires Hydrants to undergo an annual test and inspection and a 6 monthly inspection by a competent person to ensure the hydrant remains ready and in a working condition for brigade use. The “RP” should make periodical inspections of all Hydrants on a weekly and or a monthly basis.

Our Fire Hydrant Expertise

RES can undertake all aspects of Fire Hydrant and associated equipment (brigade fittings, flat lay hoses etc) servicing and maintenance works to British Standards using our own competent engineers and Fire Hydrant testing equipment.

The Latest Technology

As part of our fire hydrant testing, flow tests must be carried out on premises every six months (in accordance with BS 9990:2006).

Our state of the art TSI Digital Flowmaster 250 Hydrant Flow and Pressure test instrument will provide accurate measurements to ensure your hydrant is operating correctly.

The device helps to locate leaks and obstructions in the water main and provides a flow rate reading accuracy of 98%.
