By performing tests, we can confirm that the proper water supply is available, all devices and components are in working condition, and that your system will be ready in case of emergency. Our testing services include, but are not limited to:

  • Hydrostatic Test (5 year)
  • Main Drain Test
  • Residential Flow Test
  • Fire Pump Test
  • Trip Test of dry pipe, deluge, or pre-action valves
  • Backflow Prevention Device Testing/ RPZ Testing

Do you have a fire department test coming up? We recommend you schedule a “pre-test” 30 days prior to your fire department test date. This allows time to correct any deficiencies so that you don’t need to worry if your system will pass the day of the actual test.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A hydrostatic test verifies the integrity of the system by pressurizing with water at the appropriate psi for 2 hours. The New York Fire Department issues a violation for hydrostatic testing every five years.
The 5 year hydrostatic test is conducted onsite with the Fire Department to test the operations of the sprinkler system. The 5 year obstruction inspection does not require the Fire Department to be onsite, and the sprinkler system piping is inspected for possible debris that could cause pipe or sprinkler blockage.
The water flow test is conducted to ensure water flow detecting devices are operational, alarms are operational, and a signal is sent to and received by the central station (if connected).
The main drain test is performed to ensure the proper water supply is available at the system riser, detect changes in the water supply that may affect sprinkler system performance, and ensure drain valves are operational.
Backflow prevention devices prevent contaminants from flowing back into the public drinking water supply. The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) requires an annual test to ensure the backflow device is operating properly.
