We have built proprietary test equipment that allows us to test more feet of hose, under varying levels of pressure, than anyone else. We adhere to a strict process which includes:
Fail Safe also tests Hard Suction Hose (optional service) per NFPA 1962 section 7.5. using a dry vacuum vs typical hydrostatic test. Fail Safe will check all your hard suction hose for air leaks, physical damage, and inner lining issues that can cause collapse of the hose walls. All crews are outfitted with testing equipment and can test your Hard Suction Hose at the same time as your regular hose.
Fail Safe labels and records all information for each length of hose we test. Our Crew Supervisors and highly trained staff ensure that each hose length is both pressure tested and visually inspected. We record every length with details that are in accordance with NFPA standards. We maintain a computerized history of your fire company's hose for every year we service you.
Additionally, the records we provide have been reviewed and accepted by ISO, the Insurance Services Organization, which rates fire departments on their adherence to safety standards. Annual records maintained by Fail Safe and provided to each department have been accepted by ISO for years, and will help lower your township or city's insurance bills.
