Comprehensive Fire Hydrant Commissioning Tests

Fire hydrant commissioning to ‘Australian Standard AS2419.1 – Fire Hydrant Installations’ ensures that the fire hydrant system has been designed and installed correctly, it is one of the final documentations upon completion. The main elements of the test include:

  • A hydrostatic test
  • A fire pump appliance boost test for the most disadvantaged hydrants
  • Testing each fire pump set from the most disadvantaged hydrants
  • Measuring the fire tank in-fill rate
  • Checking signage, gauges, test points, locks and block plans are installed
  • Submitting a Commissioning Report (including Form 71 – Fire Hydrant and Sprinklers System Commissioning) 
  • Street Hydrant Testing for Building Certification – Form 71 

The pump appliance boost test is required for sites with a booster cabinet. It ensures the friction loss is within acceptable limits and allows the fire brigade working pressure to be calculated.

Tank Infill Flow Measurement – Ultrasonic Flow Meter

The flow through a pipe can be measured and logged from the pipe externally without interfering with the flow internally or needing to discharge the water to the atmosphere. This is ideal for measuring fire tank infill rates, conducting leak detection investigations and logging process flows.
