Talk to me about Dry Risers

Post by stephen1974 » Sat Jul 13, 2019 1:20 am

Annual pressure and flow tests obviously have to be carried out by a competant person with the right equipment, but what does the 6 monthly visual inspection involve and who can carry them out? I believe its only qualified people but if it can be done in house i'm sure people would prefer that.

Are there any other inspections?

Search the forum for the Glasgow Library Research link to access BS9990; it was discussed quite recently, the link that is, not BS9990 ;)

The 6 monthly is basically making sure everything is there and working, without applying water.

I tried the Glasgow library thing but all it did was give me a code that i had to take in to a physical library before i could get access.

I have a copy of BS9999 but only found 3 references to dry risers and nothing to do with maintenance. (That I could see).
