Fire Hydrant Testing & Maintenance

What is a Fire Hydrant?


Fire hydrants are used by Fire Brigades to provide a supply of water in the vicinity. They are usually located on public footways or highways and are owned, installed and maintained by the water companies. However, hydrants can also been found on private land such as hospitals, university campuses, retail parks, holiday parks, large warehouse sites etc. The maintenance of private hydrants is the responsibility of the owner, occupier or operator of the site. 

Fire hydrants require regular inspection and occasional maintenance in accordance with BS9990.  This ensures they will work correctly when required during an emergency.   

What is the Importance of Correct Hydrant Signage?


The typical yellow 'H' Plate sign used in the UK is important to identify the location of a fire hydrant, the numbering is also important, because it tells the fire crews the exact location of the hydrant in that vicinity and the diameter of the water main which the hydrant is connected to. 

Why Choose M-Fire to Carry out Hydrant Testing?


Our experienced Hydrant & Riser Crews have decades of experience, maintaining fire hydrants and using them during their careers in the Fire Service. Our fully calibrated, digital flow and pressure meters provide accurate test results, these tests results which are emailed directly to the client following a maintenance visit. Many companies do not carry spare parts for hydrants, however we ensure that a reasonable level of spare parts are carried on the vehicle should they be required and agreed with the responsible person, thus ensuring that the hydrant is working correctly and fully compliant. 

Service Agreements


M-Fire offer Service Agreements for Fire Hydrants to take the hassle away from you. Once the Service Agreement is in place, we will contact you each time a service visit is due to be carried out to arrange a convenient time to attend.
