Hydrostatic Tests on Fire Hoses

We have specialized equipment to perform hydrostatic tests on fire hoses in accordance with NFPA regulations. Each fire hose aged 5 years and older, present in public or private buildings, in companies, industries or fire services, must undergo a hydrostatic test every 3 years or more often if the hose has been over-used and/or used under abnormal conditions. Each hose tested is thoroughly dried before returning to service. Poor drying reduces the normal life of the hose.
