From the moment a fire hydrant is installed, it begins to rust. In time, the caps may rust so tight they cannot be removed. Valves and joints develop blistering and pitting to the point of becoming unusable. This is often referred to as being “galded.” Hydrants in this condition can be very difficult to open, or even contain parts so corroded as to make using them under pressure a dangerous enterprise.
The last thing firemen want to fight is the fire hydrant they are depending on to put out a fire. Preventive Maintenance and our annual inspection/flush will help ensure that your hydrant is up to par and in working condition. Additionally, we paint hydrants!
Whether its one hydrant or one hundred hydrants, were RED E to inspect them for you.
