Fire Hydrant Testing Flow with ERF Group Services

Hydrant flow testing is a process used to measure the flow rate and pressure of water from a fire hydrant. The purpose of the test is to determine the capacity of the hydrant to deliver water to firefighting operations and to assess the adequacy of the water supply system. The flow test is performed by opening the hydrant and measuring the flow of water through a device such as a flow meter. The pressure at the hydrant is also measured with a gauge. The results of the test can then be used to determine if the hydrant is suitable for use in the event of a fire.

Hydrant flow testing is an important component of fire safety and preparedness, as it helps to ensure that firefighting crews have access to the water they need to effectively put out fires. The frequency and method of hydrant flow testing may vary depending on local regulations and the condition of the water supply system.
