Hydrostatic test on fire hoses

We have the specialized equipment to perform hydrostatic tests (tests) on fire hoses in accordance with the NFPA standard.  Each fire hose, aged 5 years and over, present in public or private buildings, businesses, industries or fire departments must undergo a hydrostatic test every 3 years or before if the hose has been overused and / or requested under abnormal conditions.  Each hose tested is carefully dried before it is returned to service. Poor drying will reduce the normal life of the casing.
