5 year hydrostatic test NYC
Let’s talk about the 5 year hydrostatic test NYC property managers are required to do by law.
Fire sprinkler and standpipe systems need to be tested every five years. The “hydro-static” pressure test (or flow test), gauges and confirms that your piping system is free of leaks. It ensures your system’s ability to accommodate the high water pressure required in case of a fire. The test can take as much as two hours to complete. It can only be performed by a licensed, certified and properly insured master fire suppression contractor.
For over 50 years, Master Fire Systems has been a leader in the fire protection industry. We will provide you with diagnostic data, and certify in writing that your sprinkler system is up to code. In this way, you will be prepared in the event the FDNY does a spot check on your bar, restaurant, hotel, night club, venue, auto body shop, office, etc.
What is the procedure for getting five year hydrostatic pressure test? Master Fire will do an on-site survey, in order to ready your business for a pre-test prior to your FDNY test date. It’s the same approach we use with fire suppression systems. We do a mock test in order to verify that your system will pass inspection. If repairs to your sprinkler system are necessary, we will give you a report with our recommendations and estimates in writing.
As you can see, a lot is required of building owners and property management companies when it comes to fire sprinkler testing and inspection. Check out this video on our YouTube Channel and you’ll see how we approach performing a flow test. https://youtu.be/hn00piMmsg0
