FIRE HYDRANT INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS
As per NFPA 25:
- Private Fire Hydrants (both Wet & Dry Barrel) shall be inspected at intervals not greater than 1 year and again, immediately after every incidental operation.
- All testing and maintenance procedures shall be carried out in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
- Manufacturer specifications state that maintenance will require the removal of the internal operation parts for visual inspection, lubrication and replacement of worn or damaged parts.
- Upon removal, lubrication and reassembly, the Fire Hydrants are then serviced for operation to ensure that the isolating gate valve was turned back on and that the hydrant is left in working order.
PROFESSIONAL FIRE HYDRANT INSPECTORS ON YOUR SIDE
