This form is also to be used in accordance with the ‘Fire hydrant and sprinkler system commissioning and periodic maintenance procedure’, defined in MP 6.1 as the ‘Relevant procedure’. Please note that this form does not comprise all maintenance requirements—this form is only for collecting results for maintenance for some sections of the Australian Standards referred to and in each case, further testing is required.
This part relates to tests under Section 4 of AS1851. If pressure/flow rates do not meet the fire system design criteria and there are no on-site problems, contact the relevant water service provider to ascertain if there are any problems with the water system network. In the table below, please record the pressure readings obtained during the hydrant system flow test.
This part relates to sections 10.4 and 10.5 of AS2419.1 and for tests under Section 4 of AS1851. If pressure/flow rates do not meet the fire system design criteria and there are no on-site problems, contact the relevant water service provider to ascertain if there are any problems with the water system network. In the table below, please record the pressure readings obtained during the pump appliance booster test.
