Privately Owned
Fire Hydrant Inspection

Our team of certified water professionals will inspect, maintain, repair and re-certify any fire hydrant on private property within Western Canada based on the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements, and your Provincial Fire Codes.

In addition, we incorporate the guidelines of the Fire Underwriters of Canada Survey (FUS), a set of protocols that offer a more detailed and stringent approach to fire hydrant safety, especially tailored to the challenges posed by Canada's colder climate.

As per NFPA, Private Fire Hydrants are required to be inspected annually, and after each unintended operation.     

Unsure if your Fire Hydrant is Privately owned? We can help! 

Private Fire Hydrant
Inspection Requirements

During an inspection, Velocity Water Services will ensure the hydrant is fully opened allowing the uninterrupted flow of water to remove all foreign material.  We'll note any deficiencies and offer our expertise towards the appropriate corrective actions.

Our team has the knowledge and experience to ensure testing and maintenance procedures are carried out in accordance with manufacturer specifications.  


Fire Hydrant Services

At Velocity, we offer specialized services for privately owned firewater systems, ensuring they meet private fire hydrant requirements and Provincial Fire Codes. 

Private Hydrant Testing

Regular testing of private fire hydrants is crucial to ensure they function correctly and adhere to both NFPA standards and the more detailed requirements of the Fire Underwriters of Canada Survey (FUS). Our team conducts thorough assessments, including a complete flush, to clear any foreign materials and verify the hydrant's operational integrity.

Fire Hydrant Repair

If issues are identified during our testing process, Velocity Water Services is equipped to handle all necessary repairs promptly and efficiently. Whether it's routine wear and tear or specific compliance issues, our skilled technicians ensure your private fire hydrants are repaired to meet the highest standards of safety.

Hydrant Inspections

A scheduled preventive maintenance program is also the best way of avoiding large, unexpected costs associated with reactive maintenance.  During our cold Canadian winters, fire hydrants can freeze. Although fire hydrants used in Canada are designed to resist freezing, completing a maintenance inspection in the fall is your best protection against potential winter freezing. 

If a hydrant is found to not comply with NFPA preventive freezing standards, Velocity Water Services can perform the maintenance alteration required to fix the issue.
