Industry standards for hydrant flow tests have been set forth by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the National Fire Protection Association.
First Response conducts annual fire hydrant inspections and flow testing for our clients in and around Watertown, Oswego, Utica and other points in the North Country. During these tests, we determine proper operations of valves, visible and audible leaks, water pressure, flow of gallons per minute and ability to flush out sediment in the main.
Flow meters and other gauges are used in this process. Data is collected, analysed and calculated. A full report is then generated for the customer.
