NFPA standards require that all public fire hydrants be inspected on an annual basis. Fire hydrants can be affected by a number of outside factors, including regular wear-and-tear, accidental damage, vandalism or mechanical function. If your Maryland, Virginia or Washington, DC building’s fire hydrant needs inspection, call Guardian Fire Protection today. Our certified trained technicians can ensure that your fire hydrant stays up to code and will be able to protect you and your business in the event of a fire.
Fire Hydrant Inspection Process
At Guardian Fire Protection, our fire hydrant inspection process is designed to ensure that your building’s fire hydrant meets all proper codes. We start by opening your fire hydrant fully and letting it flow for at least a full minute. This clears all foreign material out of the fire hydrant and lets it run as smoothly as possible. After stopping the flow we observe the fire hydrant and make sure it drains properly. Finally, we lubricate all fire hydrant stems, threads and caps to make sure they are in proper operating condition and will be easily accessible to the fire department.
