HYDRANT BOOSTER FLOW TESTING

Most companies offer the Hydrostatic Pressure Test but not the Booster Flow Test.

This test simulates Fire Brigade operations when firefighting – under the designed water flows & pressures. This test proves there are no obstructions or impediments between the booster arrangement, the fire pump bypass and the most remote hydrant valve.

This test is often NOT performed but is arguably the most critical.

AFT has two fire fighting pumpers that are able to perform any 5 yearly hydrostatic AND booster flow test. See links below for more information.
