Plumbers & Builders

AFST – FireTesting is a vital partner for Plumbing Contractors and Builders building, extending, and refurbishing any building that includes fire hydrants, fire sprinkler or fire hose reel systems.   In fact, any building over 500m2 requires fire hydrant and hose reels which AFST FireTesting can assist with water supply mains flow & pressure testing, design document review, commissioning tests and certification.

Many clients involve us early in project to check mains flow & pressure, sanity check designs, undertaking preliminary testing to check system performance, size pumps confirm system are leak test before concrete cover is poured. Before final testing, commissioning for certification AFST can draft block plans and collect information to write of the Form 12. AFST – FireTesting provides;

  • Commissioning of fire hydrants, hose reels, brigade boosters and pumpset systems to provide a Form 71 for Building Certification.
  • Hydrostatic pressure testing for structural integrity of pipelines including PE polyethylene pipe & fittings.

Hydraulic Designers. Engineers & Certifiers

AFST – FireTesting are the industry leaders in testing for flow & pressure of municipal water supply mains.  Fire and Hydraulic Services Engineers must have sound, reliable up-to-date information as to the water mains pressure and flow the water main can deliver to the fire systems they are designing.

For building less than 2000m2 the street fire hydrant hydrants may be adequate for fire hydrant protection.  But councils nor water authority are legally required to ensure the street hydrants perform sufficient for fire hydrant protection.  Street hydrants performance should be checked before a building design is approved for construction and again when the building is completed to issue a Form 71.

  • Water Main flow and pressure testing to provide reliable real life data for hydraulic design and fire system engineers.
  • Flow and pressure of new fire service connection to water mains to determine pumpset sizing and if fire water tanks are required
  • Street or spring hydrant testing for Building Certification to provide Form 71.
