Having your fire hydrants and associated systems serviced is a requirement. As fire hydrant systems are used by the fire brigade it is critical that they are maintained to Australian standard and fines may be issued should this not occur. Misuse carries a substantial fine also and can reduce the effectiveness of the fire hydrant in the event of an emergency.
All of our fire hydrant systems servicing is carried out in accordance with AS1851:2012 by our fully qualified technicians at your premises. Minor repairs to fire hydrants can be carried out, when required, however major repairs will be carried out by our specialised plumber. We also carry a small range of spare parts.
AS1851:2012 requires all fire hydrant systems to be serviced on a 6 monthly basis with specific items to be tested annually and 5 yearly such as Flow testing and Hydrostatic testing. You may also find that servicing is a requirement specified by your insurance company or may lead to a price reduction for your insurance policy if this is carried out.
After any servicing work, all maintenance tags are updated to reflect the date of the service and type of service carried out and a full location report is emailed to the designated contact. This is a requirement of AS1851:2012
The Australian standard AS1851:2012 section 4 relates to fire hydrant system servicing and testing and is the basis for all fire hydrant servicing carried out by our technicians.
