ANNUAL HYDRANT & VALVE SURVEYS

 

ANNUAL HYDRANT & VALVE SURVEYS

Fire Flow Test for New Construction

Residual fire hydrant flow testing per NFPA. Fire flow tests are required prior to the installation of fire suppression systems to test static and residual pressure while hydrant flow testing. Fire hydrant safety inspections are performed during fire hydrant flow testing. Fire flow testing hydrants is required when calculating available water at a specific system pressure.

Comprehensive Inspections, Flow Testing and Reporting

Fire hydrant flow testing tests available flow pressure, operability and hydrant reliability through an entire water supply system. Flow testing hydrants annually will ensure flow pressures are adequate to fight fires. Hydrant flow testing is performed by flow testing out of 2.5 inch nozzles.

Valve Surveys

Low flow pressures measured during hydrant flow testing may indicate valve issues. Hydrant flow testing throughout a water system will uncover valves which are not fully open. Valve surveys can correct partially open valves during a valve survey. Be up-to-date on all water valve positions by conducting valve surveys. All data gathered is compatible with GIS.

Fire hydrant flow test, inspection and survey includes:

Fire hydrant flow testing

50+ point hydrant inspection

Operation of each hydrant (open and close fully)

Flushing of the mains

Verify the operation/reliability of the hydrant

Check for needed parts

Static and flow pressure tests

Delivery of flow test and inspection report

Immediate notification of out of service hydrants

Safety Inspections

Annual fire hydrant safety inspections are conducted while flow testing fire hydrants. Many safety issues are impossible to detect without fire hydrant flow testing. An annual fire hydrant inspection is required for each fire hydrant. Have you been contacted by a Fire Marshall? Our hydrant safety inspections review over 50 points on each hydrant.

Wireless Valve Exerciser

Easily and effectively operate the valves in your system with a wireless automated valve exerciser. Valve exercising can be done easily and more effectively when you use an automatic valve exerciser. A wireless valve exerciser is a common tool used to improve worker performance while lowering operator exhaustion. Increase productivity with a wireless valve exerciser.

Valve Exercising

The AWWA recommends all water utilities initiate a valve exercise program that requires all valves to be inspected and operated on a regular basis. With thousands and thousands of valves, a valve exercising and valve surveying program can be intimidating. With the help of a professional surveying company, water valves can be surveyed, located, exercised and GPSed for integration into GIS.

Hydrant Flow Test and Inspection Data

Our hydrant and valve survey reports are compatible with GIS. After a survey is complete, you will be given a file which you can use to create a shapefile and update hydrant and valve positions within GIS. Decide which attributes are important to you and filter the data to view the valves and hydrants in your GIS in a completely different way.

Fire Hydrant Flushing Notice, Hints, and FAQs

All hydrants are required to be flushed at least annually. This page contains flushing purposes, hints, reminders and FAQ’s. Remember to always notify residents prior to a flushing program in order to keep them informed and help minimize dirty water complaints.

Hydrant.com specializes in fire hydrant inspections, fire flow testing, fire hydrant surveys, hydrant flushing, hydrant testing, valve exercising, valve surveys, and GIS integration. We provide you with detailed reporting of all fire hydrants and valves in your system. Call us for more information about your fire hydrant inspections, fire flow tests, and valve surveys.
Fire hydrant flow testing, fire flow tests, and hydrant testing are important ways to measure aspects of a water supply system. A fire hydrant test is critical in determining areas in your system which require special attention. Always have your fire hydrants inspected annually to asses the conditions of your fire hydrants and confirm flow pressures. Hydrant.com also offers residual fire flow tests often required during new construction. Contact us today for a quote and to schedule your fire hydrant testing. Hydrant testing should be part of an annual fire hydrant testing program.
Flow tests for cities and private entities. We also provide fire hydrant and valve surveying for GIS and work order management systems
