Fire Flow Measurement

Fire hydrants are an important component within public and private water supply networks. For public health and firefighting operations, the hydrants should be tested on a regular basis to ensure that they are capable of delivering water at required pressures and flow rates. The distribution systems are constantly impacted by improvements, deterioration, changes in usage and even maintenance activities.

HUSA hydrant test procedures are conducted in accordance with AWWA Fire Flow Testing and ISO procedures. The tests include detailed determination of both the flow and test hydrants, measuring of static and residual test pressures, conducting sufficient hydrant flow to adequately stress the system and the necessary analyses to determine fire-flow capacities. HUSA has conducted hydrant tests with multiple flow hydrants under varying system boundary conditions to support engineering facility plan models and identify operational conditions.
