FIRE FLOW TEST
Fire Flow Test Application – Fire hydrant flow tests determine the flow rate and pressure in any location throughout a water company’s or water authority’s underground water distribution system. Fire hydrants are tested regularly to ensure that they are capable of providing water at an acceptable pressure and flow rate for public health and firefighting operations.
