It’s your responsibility
Fire hydrant testing
Fire hydrants are an essential part of fire safety. They are used by the fire brigade to access water from the local mains supply. When located on private property, it’s maintenance is the responsibility of the land or business owner.
To comply with UK regulations, fire hydrants should be checked and maintained by professionals. Total Safe offers fire hydrant testing throughout Essex. Regular fire hydrant inspection and maintenance enables fire fighters to have access to the tools they need to save lives.
You’re in safe hands
Your Total Safe engineer will perform a visual inspection of the hydrant frame and cover, the surface surrounding the hydrant and the “H” plate, removing any debris or vegetation that has grown – it’s essential that the fire brigade have easy, unobstructed access in an emergency situation.
The test continues with inspections of the valves, outlet cap, water pressure and flow rate. If required, your Total Safe engineer can carry out any repairs and maintenance.
